Power Shift Project

an initiative promoting workplace integrity on behalf of women in the news industry

Jill Geisler, Freedom Forum Institute Fellow on Women’s Leadership Jill’s Bio

The Freedom Forum Institute is committed to promoting workplace integrity, defined as eliminating sexual harassment and creating opportunities for all. This is the goal of the Power Shift Project, an outgrowth of the Power Shift Summit that was held at the Newseum in January 2018. The project helps journalists and newsroom leaders implement the solutions identified at the summit, which are detailed in the Power Shift Report below.

Jill Geisler, the Bill Plante Chair in Leadership and Media Integrity at Loyola University Chicago, will help guide the Power Shift Project as the newly appointed Freedom Forum Institute Fellow in Women’s Leadership.

The resources and programs of the Power Shift Project are designed for leaders, HR professionals, educators, employees and interns, and the lessons can be applied to all sectors of the workforce — not just the media. We invite you to use our resources in your classroom or workplace, participate in our programs and engage with us on social media. Together we can make the workplace a safer, more empowering environment for all.
