From Pen America | Supporting Staff Facing Online Abuse: Best Practices for Editors and Managers
If you’re an editor or newsroom leader, chances are you have staff who are routinely subjected to hate and harassment online. Because women, BIPOC, and members of the LGBTQIA+ community are disproportionately targeted, online abuse directly undermines efforts to create a more equitable and inclusive work environment. Co-hosted by PEN America and Hearken, join newsrooms leaders from Vox, Reuters, and The New York Times to exchange ideas and learn concrete strategies for how to better protect and support staff in preparing for, responding to, and mitigating the damage of online abuse.
Speakers include Jason Reich, the vice president of corporate security for The New York Times Company; Kristin Neubauer, a video news producer for Reuters in Washington, D.C.; Donte Stewart , who; serves as the lead for Starbucks Corp.’s travel intelligence and safety program; and Viktorya Vilk, the program director for digital safety and free expression at PEN America.
