On Jan. 9, 2018, the Newseum will convene “The Power Shift Summit,” a high-level gathering of invited leaders across journalism and the media industry that will focus on sexual misconduct in newsrooms and how to create meaningful and sustainable change.
Beginning at 10 a.m. ET, the summit will feature three major discussions that will engage participants in solutions-based conversation about what newsrooms and media organizations are doing now to deal with emerging cases, and what systemic changes are needed for the future.
Journalists who reported stories about sexual misconduct will discuss the impact of their coverage during the summit.
The invitation-only summit will be organized as a series of discussions featuring respected conversation leaders from all media platforms. Jill Geisler, who is Loyola University Chicago’s Bill Plante Chair in Leadership and Media Integrity, will lead the conversations.
Additional participants will be announced.
The summit will be livestreamed on newseum.org/live, and a report and action items for the future will be distributed to newsrooms and media organizations after the summit. Attendance is limited to invited guests. Follow the conversation on Twitter with the hashtag #PowerShiftSummit.
