January 9, 2018: ‘Power Shift’ Addresses Scandal with Solutions

Date: January 9, 2018

In response to sex abuse scandals involving major media figures, the Newseum convenes the Power Shift Summit, seeking solutions-based alternatives for employees facing abuse and emphasizing the need for diversity and inclusiveness in America’s newsrooms. The summit launches the Power Shift Project, with grant funding from CBS to implement its Workplace Integrity Training program, designed to produce workplaces free of harassment, discrimination and incivility, and filled with opportunity, especially for those who have traditionally been denied it.
