This week we expand Poynter’s capacity to teach innovation, design and product thinking, and diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging by welcoming Tony Elkins ([link removed]) as a full-time faculty member.
Tony is a founding member of the News Product Alliance and most recently served as Gannett’s product director and senior director of innovation. Plus, he’s a Poynter alum!
“I’ve often told people my journalism career can easily be categorized in two parts, before Poynter and after Poynter,” said Tony. He credits the Leadership Academy in 2013 as a turning point in his career.
As faculty, Tony’s portfolio will include co-directing the Leadership Academy for Diversity in Media ([link removed]) with Poynter adjunct Kathy Lu.
Meet Tony and Kathy on Tuesday, Feb. 7, at noon Eastern during a LinkedIn Live event ([link removed]) . They will preview the 2023 Leadership Academy for Diversity in Media, and share their advice for getting your boss to invest in your professional development. Mark your calendar here ([link removed]) .
Essential Skills for Rising Newsroom Leaders

Leadership Academy for Diversity in Media
In-person program, St. Petersburg, Florida, Oct. 1-6
With remote and hybrid work, it can be harder to make meaningful connections that enrich your career. Enter: Poynter’s Leadership Academy for Diversity in Media.
Part of the academy's signature experience comes from having honest conversations about the challenges for BIPOC journalists in management roles — with fellow BIPOC journalists and leaders. For many participants, this transparent environment offers what they don’t always get in their daily work: understanding and opportunities to unburden and heal.
The program structure and curriculum also provide participants the connections, confidence and skills to confront their challenges.
Meet incredible people. Build up your community. Change your outlook.
Cost: $500. Apply by Feb. 17.
