Supporting staff facing online abuse: Best practices for editors and managers
October 14, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
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.
