Sarah Glover and Jill Geisler
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Dec. 11, 2017) — NABJ President Sarah Glover will participate in a leadership role at “The Power Shift Summit,” a high-level gathering of invited leaders across journalism and the media industry that will focus on sexual misconduct in newsrooms and how to create meaningful and sustainable change.
Jill Geisler, who is Loyola University Chicago’s Bill Plante Chair in Leadership and Media Integrity, will lead the conversations. President Glover will be working with Geisler as a co-navigator for the day’s discussions.
The summit will feature three major discussions that will engage participants in solutions-based conversation about what newsrooms and media organizations are doing now to deal with emerging cases, and what systemic changes are needed for the future.
Journalists who reported stories about sexual misconduct will discuss the impact of their coverage during the summit on Jan. 9, 2018 at the Newseum in Washington, D.C.
The invitation-only summit is organized as a series of discussions featuring respected conversation leaders from all media platforms.
