Each year, SXSW strives to take a deeper look at important topics that affect modern society through the lens of tech and culture. After extensive research and numerous conversations with a community of passionate experts in activism, entertainment, public policy and technology, SXSW is honored to announce the sessions and speakers for the inaugural Online Harassment Summit.
Online harassment is a reality that society can no longer ignore. This pervasive issue threatens to undermine all the positive possibilities and potential of our increasingly connected world. SXSW is proud to be a part of the movement that champions online civility while identifying solutions for a safer online community moving forward.
The SXSW Online Harassment Summit will take place on Saturday, March 12 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, and is open to all Interactive, Film, Gold, and Platinum badges.
