The Newseum will convene “The Power Shift Summit,” a Jan. 9 gathering of invited leaders across journalism and the media industry that will focus on sexual misconduct in newsrooms and how to create meaningful and sustainable change.

The event will feature three major discussions that will engage participants in solutions-based conversation about what newsrooms and media organizations are doing now to deal with emerging cases, and what systemic changes are needed for the future.

Journalists who reported stories about sexual misconduct will discuss the impact of their coverage during the summit.
