Journalists expected to maintain an online presence and engage on social media — particularly those who identify as women, LGBTQ+, and/or BIPOC — are increasingly facing online abuse, from impersonation and hacking to doxing (publishing private info). Bring your devices and join this hands-on workshop to learn how to outsmart the trolls by auditing your social media accounts, tightening your privacy settings, and tracking down your personal info so you can maintain the public profile you need to do your job.

This session is designed for:

  • Women, LGBTQ+ journalists and journalists of color who are disproportionately targeted by online abuse
  • Managers looking to build systems to protect and support their journalists
  • Anyone interested in what, exactly, trolls might be able to find about them
  • Speakers
