Near D.C.? You’re invited to Mind to Mind at American University on Oct. 12

mcc mupjRevealers,

If you’re in the D.C area, you’re invited to attend Mind to Mind, a symposium that brings together the nation’s top academics, journalists, researchers and public policy officials to discuss America’s workforce.

Experts will include a mix of attorneys, economists, former public policy officials from OSHA and the department of labor, sociologists and journalists. They will discuss topics including the #MeToo movement in the workplace, abuse in rehab camps, workplace safety at Tesla and Los Alamos laboratory, and the role of federal agencies such as OSHA and OFCCP in protecting American workers and more. The full agenda is here.

Speakers include Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists Megan Twohey and Ellen Gabler from the #MeToo team at The New York Times; Patricia Shiu, the former director of OFCCP; Jordan Barab, former associate director at OSHA; Bernice Yeung from ProPublica; Louise Fitzgerald from University of Illinois; Fatima Goss Graves from the National Women’s Law Center; and Amy Julia Harris, Shoshana Walter and Will Evans from Reveal. Full list here.

Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting has spent the last few years reflecting on how academics, researchers and journalists can work together. We’ve learned that journalists and academics have many things in common: Both generally care about making a positive social change, bringing accurate information to the public and pushing the boundaries of what’s known to humanity.

Yet they tend to work in parallel universes. When they have collaborated, they’ve managed to tell complex stories with enormous impact. We started this conversation last year at Stanford University with great success. This year we’re excited to bring Mind to Mind to the East Coast in partnership with American University’s School of Communication and The Investigative Reporting Workshop.

We’ll delve into what academics and journalists can learn from each other, the challenges in working together and how to make collaborations happen.

P.s. If you’re D.C. around the time and want a dose of investigative storytelling, check out Double Exposure, an investigative film festival, also happening just a few blocks away from Mind to Mind. Watch the D.C. premiere of powerful investigative films and stay for conversations with filmmakers and journalists. Slavery in the high seas, FBI surveillance of Muslim communities, sexual assault and social media are some of the themes explored.
