Description

ONA18 Sponsored Luncheon RSVP: Combating Digital Disinformation in Democracy: Tips and Tools for 2018 Elections and Beyond Hosted by Hewlett Foundation

Please join the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, in association with the Democracy Fund and the News Integrity Initiative, for this special luncheon event.

What do you do when manipulative actors on social media try to spread inaccurate content around breaking news events? What do we actually know about how disinformation is being spread on tech platforms – and affecting the attitudes and behaviors of people at the ballot boxes and in the streets? Attendees will leave this luncheon session armed with practical insights on what journalists and newsroom leaders can do to spot and stop digital disinformation; the latest facts about the spread and impact of digital disinformation; and new contacts and resources from research organizations and civil society.

Speakers:

  • Joan Donovan, Data and Society
  • Alondra Nelson, Social Science Research Council
  • Craig Silverman, BuzzFeed
  • Kelly Born, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation (moderator)

Please Note: This lunch event has limited seating and requires an RSVP for entry. This RSVP is only valid for registered full-conference pass attendees of ONA18.

Location Note: Brazos Room is located on the second floor of the JW Marriott and is also marked as Room 206.

This event is generously sponsored by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, in association with the Democracy Fund and the News Integrity Initiative
