In conjunction with Women’s History Month, the Ida B. Wells Symposium will commemorate the life and journey of Ida B. Wells on Monday, March 25, 2024. Held at Pulitzer Hall, we aim to honor her contributions to journalism, the civil rights movement, and American history.

This unique event will bring together distinguished thought leaders throughout the journalism industry, scholars, Columbia Journalism School alums, faculty, students, and other practitioners to explore the ongoing opportunities and challenges facing the journalism industry around representation, inclusion, and equity.
