The Asian American Journalists Association’s Sports Task Force (AAJA STF) is introducing an interactive professional development series called Career Café, a one-hour Zoom Q&A with journalism leaders to foster a more diverse and inclusive industry. Career Café offers the rare opportunity for attendees to directly interact with industry thought leaders in an intimate setting.

The inaugural installment features groundbreaking ESPN anchor Kevin Negandhi, the first Indian American to ever anchor at a national sports network. Negandhi will discuss wide-ranging topics, from his journey from Temple University to award-winning SportsCenter host, to overcoming obstacles and becoming a South Asian journalism pioneer. Career Café’s casual vibe invites interaction and participants are encouraged to ask questions.

When: Friday, Oct. 30, 2020, 1-2pm ET.
Cost: FREE (AAJA membership is encouraged) 


The event is open to all supporters of diversity and inclusion. While free of charge, future engagement with the AAJA Sports Task Force, including AAJA membership, is encouraged.


AAJA Sports Task Force promotes diversity in the sports media industry through mentorships, scholarships and outreach programs. AAJA STF is proud of its work with other multicultural organizations to champion diversity.
