On Jan. 15, 2019, the Freedom Forum Institute’s Power Shift Project will convene the Power Shift Summit 2.0 at the Newseum. The summit will gather invited leaders across journalism and the media industry to focus on #MeToo and the media one year later.
Power Shift Summit 2.0 will engage participants in a series of conversations about what’s changed and what hasn’t over the past year, promising practices and strategies, who are the leaders on the vanguard of change and where are the untold and overlooked stories about sexual misconduct in the workplace and beyond.
The summit will include a conversation with U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) Acting Chair Victoria Lipnic and Commissioner Chai Feldblum, co-chairs of the EEOC’s Select Task Force on the Study of Harassment in the Workplace.
Jill Geisler, Freedom Forum Institute Fellow in Women’s Leadership and Loyola University Chicago’s Bill Plante Chair in Leadership and Media Integrity, will lead participants in a series of conversations intended to encourage a wide diversity of voices and views. She will be joined by Power Shift advisory board members Sarah Glover, president of the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ), and Elisa Lees Munoz, executive director of the International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF).
