From BBC to NPR to CBC, how can media institutions forged in the past serve our chaotic present? What will we need from public media in an unpredictable future? Why is the ideal of an informed society more crucial than ever? Find out in this surprising and timely talk from award-winning thinker and strategist, Sue Gardner. Ex-Wikimedia Foundation director, journalist, and former head of cbc.ca, Gardner is a Canadian based in San Francisco. She casts a critical eye on both the techscape of Silicon Valley and the ever-changing media world. She consults and advises both realms on issues of gender, journalism, and digital freedom.
