It's no secret that the news industry is in crisis. Local and regional newspapers are shrinking and disappearing at a startling pace. And many digital media organizations that arose to fill the void are also collapsing.

In this economic reality, investigative reporting -- which requires disproportional time and money -- is in peril. The Washington Post recently offered buyouts to almost its entire investigative team. Buzzfeed news cut its Pulitzer-winning i-team, and then shut down altogether. The stories that dig deep to reveal corruption and abuse of power take time, money, patience and expertise. Regional news organizations were once the training ground for up-and-coming investigative reporters. And places like the Washington Post were the destinations.

So who is going to cultivate and train the next generation of investigative reporters? And where will they do their work?

Leaders at three investigative newsrooms will discuss what they are doing to nurture up-and-coming investigative reporters and editors. The panel will also explore the efforts and challenges of training and mentoring diverse investigative journalists in a field that has historically been dominated by white men.
