Education reporter Aallyah Wright, an advisory board member for the Education Writers Association, will moderate a panel at EWA’s 2020 National Seminar July 23.

Aallyah will moderate the ‘How I Did the Story’ session, where reporters give the backstory on projects and discuss what they learned along the way. The panel will feature three EWA award finalists, who will discuss their work on race and educational equity.

Aallyah joined the EWA’s advisory board, a select group of journalists from a mix of regional and national media organizations, in April. The group of accomplished journalists helps EWA carry out its mission to strengthen community of education writers and improve the quality of education coverage to help better inform the public.
