ASNE promotes newsroom leadership by offering valuable training to editors, such as the Emerging Leaders Institute. The Institute launched in 2012 with the goal of training minority journalists to become leaders in their organizations and in the industry. The program is tailored to address the most pressing issues for leaders and the skills needed to lead and drive change. Topics covered in each two-day Institute include goal setting, finance, strategy, leadership style, driving diversity, technology and innovation. ASNE has organized 16 Institutes since 2012, training more than 300 news leaders.
