Some highlights of our sessions and speakers you don't want to miss:
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?
Tools Talk: What are the key technological tools that you can implement to make your newsroom more effective and efficient? Are you using the right ones? ASNE and APME have whittled down the list of competing companies and invited the best ones to Austin to explain why other newsrooms have hired them and why you should, too. Editors will have the opportunity to ask questions about the product. You will leave with a far greater understanding of how technology can make you a better editor.
Innovation Track: Changing You and Your Newsroom: In a newsroom, change can't happen unless it starts with leaders like you. What are the key steps to getting into the right frame of mind to change the way you work so you can then change how your team works? What is it about our brains that make us slaves to old processes? How do we break free?
