Registration is now open for Leadership Austin’s June 4 Engage breakfast on news consumption and civic participation.
Media Mix: Tuning in and listening to voices with an opposing view
We all do it. We read the blogs and tune into the news outlets that support our views. How do we know we’re forming informed opinions on issues if we’re not listening to those who may have a different view? Can we find compromise and common ground if we’re rooting ourselves in only one perspective? Join us for the last breakfast of the 2013-14 Engage Breakfast Series, and hear from our panelists about how our media habits can impact our civic participation and decision making.
