Webinar: Managing #MeToo in Newsrooms

The #MeToo and Time’s Up movements have placed the problem of sexual harassment firmly in the global spotlight.

How can newsrooms ensure that employees know exactly what constitutes “sexual misconduct”?

As an employee, what are your rights, and what can you do if you or someone you know is sexually harassed?

What should you do if someone accuses you of sexual assault?

How can managers develop an effective anti-sexual harassment policy that reaches employees based in overseas bureaus?

What are the responsibilities of a news organisation if a complaint about an employee comes from somebody who is not employed at the company?

This webinar draws from Beijing-based foreign correspondent and NüVoices founder Joanna Chiu’s ongoing research as well as a new resource from WAN-IFRA, “Sexual harassment in the media – A practical guide for employers & employees” which can be downloaded from http://www.wan-ifra.org/sites/default…

The session serves as an introduction to some of the most important things newsroom managers and staff need to know to protect workers.
