As women in media, we often face unique threats to our well-being and safety, both in person and online. That’s why we’re hosting Stepping Up Safety: A Panel on Personal Security in the Field and Workplace on October 7. Leading up to the panel, we’ve asked industry professionals to share their stories, advice and personal experiences.
Last weekend I attended the Online News Association’s annual conference in L.A., where more than 2,000 journalists gathered to discuss the future of digital media.
On Friday, Sarah Jeong, contributing editor at Motherboard, moderated a panel with Soraya Chemaly, Dr. Michelle Ferrier, Amanda Hess and Laurie Penny, called “We Belong Here: Pushing Back Against Online Harassment,” focusing on the experience of women journalists.
