The Newseum Institute’s Power Shift Project — a major new initiative on behalf of women in the news industry — launches the first in a series of live interactive training sessions with a program focusing on the youngest and often most vulnerable in media.
“Power to the Interns: Strengthening Intern Preparation in a #MeToo World” will contain practical information about what educators and employers should know — and do — to ensure workplace integrity for students.
Jill Geisler, who is Loyola University Chicago’s Bill Plante Chair in Leadership and Media Integrity, will moderate three half-hour, interactive programs that will be live streamed and archived and made available for educators, employers and students to use.
|About the Power Shift Project|
The Newseum Institute, the programs partner of the Newseum, is committed to promoting workplace integrity, defined as eliminating sexual harassment and creating opportunities for all. This is the goal of the Power Shift Project, an outgrowth of the Power Shift Summit that was held at the Newseum on Jan. 9, 2018. The project helps journalists and newsroom leaders implement the solutions identified at the summit.
