CAMP 2018: Online harassment roundtable with Committee to Protect Journalists

JAWS CAMP 2018 l

The Committee to Protect Journalists will host a solutions-oriented roundtable at Conference and Mentoring Project (CAMP) in Welches, Oregon to explore women journalists’ experiences with online harassment.

The roundtable on Saturday, Oct. 13, from 4:30-5:30 p.m., will be capped at about 20 women to maintain fluid discussion.

The roundtable is an opportunity for participants to discuss how they responded to online harassment and what type of support – if any – they received. It will specifically consider how the gendered nature of digital threats impacts on the safety of women journalists, online and off, and will feed into the research CPJ is doing on this topic and the advocacy with tech platforms and newsrooms to find solutions the protect women journalists from a scourge that is increasingly common.

Please fill out this form if you’re interested in joining in the discussion. The questions will help CPJ select a diverse group of participants with varied experiences.
