Annual Journalism Conference

May 16, 2024 @ 9:00 am - 7:00 pm

The Ukrainian Institute of America (UIA) is pleased to partner with the Ukrainian Journalists’ Association of North America (UJANA) to present Day 1 of the annual journalism conference. Under the banners – Journalism in Ukraine: Telling the War Stories that Matter (Day 1) and Why We are Afraid of Untold Stories (Day 2) – the conference will feature many power panels and fireside chats with journalists, diplomats, experts and commentators. We will pinpoint the state of the war in Ukraine, what needs to be done immediately to improve the dire state of the Ukrainian media sector, and how we move from conversation to conversion. The conference will take place amid the multi billion dollar ask for the reconstruction of Ukraine, and as the beleaguered media sector tries to navigate extremely difficult challenges created by the war.

Day One will be held at our iconic landmark mansion on Central Park East. Pre-registration is required.




Day Two – focused on improving storytelling and forging a path forward for the Ukrainian media sector – is by invitation only and for media workers and will be held at another iconic site in midtown Manhattan.

Each year, UJANA hosts a keynote speaker from the media sector in Ukraine. This year, we are pleased to announce the participation of Sevgil Musaieva, Editor-in-Chief of the leading online publication, Ukrainska Pravda. She is also the recipient of the Committee to Protect Journalists 2022 International Press Freedom Award.

Once again this year, some sessions will be co-branded with the Atlantic Council.
