In Pursuit of Objectivity
A conversation with Susanna Schrobsdorff, an Executive Editor at TIME
An essential part of being a good journalist is the ability to build trust and establish relationships across diverse cultures and value systems. Join SIETAR DC and TIME Magazine's Susanna Schrobsdorff for a lively discussion about her adventures in intercultural storytelling and the challenges of pursuing objectivity without losing your humanity.

In addition, Susanna has a regular column in the magazine and she has edited many of TIME’s most-read, most-discussed cover stories including TIME’s 2017 Person of the Year, “The Silence Breakers,” the voices that launched the #MeToo movement.
Susanna is the winner of a New York Press Club award for Outstanding Web Coverage and three Front Page Awards for cultural commentary, interactive journalism and video. She also spent five years as TIME's Newsdesk Editor in Paris and Brussels.
