The #metoo moment forces us to ask: how do we shape newsrooms to empower women in journalism to shatter the glass ceiling. As the number of women in journalism climbs around the world we have to move beyond calling out bad behaviour such as sexual harassment and trolling. We have to work out how to shape work to end inequality in pay, opportunity and promotion, from top to bottom.
Women are joining together to demand equality and respect and to empower women at work, and journalism can lead the way. This international panel of women leaders from Germany, Brazil, Australia and the United States will lead a discussion about the practical steps women are taking to move beyond #metoo, to a future built on respect for diversity. We’ll break down the systemic issues at play, and explore practical tools for working journalists and newsrooms to break through the glass ceiling.
