The IWMF is committed to providing safety training and assistance to address these realities. We have been working with journalists and newsrooms both in the US and globally to provide customized training and collaborate with newsrooms to develop their safety policies.
Join our inaugural News Safety Cohort!
Journalists are increasingly being targeted online for not only what they write, but for who they are. Newsrooms have a duty of care to protect their staff online through policies and procedures that support journalists before, during and after an online attack. The IWMF’s News Safety Cohort will offer a group of international newsrooms access to:
- Peer learning with newsrooms worldwide and ongoing engagement opportunities to share lessons learned and best practices with the journalism community.
- Customized safety trainings with a gender and identity lens and support with developing newsroom safety protocols.
- Access to the latest resources and one-on-one consultations with leading safety experts.
- Access to the IWMF’s emergency funds and mental health resources for staff.
