Some highlights of our sessions and speakers you don't want to miss:
Big J Track: Building Trust: What can you do to increase the trust that your readers have in your work? There are now at least seven funded projects around the world tackling this question and offering real solutions that you can implement immediately. Meet the folks behind these efforts and see the early results of their work.
Big J Track: When the Trolls Turn On Your Reporters: Social media attacks against reporters are becoming more common, with women in fields like sports especially likely to face sexist vitriol. Meet the journalists who have gone through this experience and hear from experts on what you should do as a newsroom manager to help and support your staff.
Harassment in the Newsroom: In the year of #metoo, newsrooms are confronting incidents of sexual harassment by reporters and editors. What have we learned? Drawing on the lessons of the Newseum's groundbreaking Power Shift Summit, Jill Geisler, Bill Plante Chair of Leadership and Media Integrity at Loyola University Chicago, will lead a wide-open conversation focused on changing the way we hire, train and respond to issues of workplace misconduct and revisiting the systems that led to years of silence. We will look at which publishers are examining the intersection of harassment, discrimination and incivility and taking on the big challenges. Who's recognizing that things that aren't necessarily illegal are still unacceptable? Who's looking out for the least powerful in newsrooms: our interns, temporary workers and freelancers?
