A One-Day Workshop for Photojournalists On Sexual Harassment, Gender and Safety

This innovative one-day workshop aims to create an in-person dialogue among photographers about sexual harassment, gender and its intersections as well as safety in the field. It includes discussions of strategies to prevent negative interactions, to deal with them when they happen and to work past them afterwards.

The goal of the workshop is to help photographers work together to support each other and to promote gender equity and safety in photojournalism.

Sexual harassment and gender discrimination, both within the industry and in the societies we document, can prevent women-identified photographers from reaching their full potential as journalism professionals by minimizing important voices vital to the audiences we serve.

The workshop includes group discussions, small group scenarios, defining harassment and new tools to mitigate it. It attempts to build consensus around ways to create a culture of inclusion and equity of opportunity within photography.

The workshop is led by Maddie McGarvey and Victor J. Blue, two photojournalists who developed the Working Together curriculum and run workshops with the help of volunteer facilitators who help guide conversations.

Presented by the Power Shift Project & the International Women’s Media Foundation in collaboration with Working Together
