Who does the media serve?
In the first session, titled Media Power, we will hear from award-winning journalist Ahmed Shihab-Eldin (USA / Kuwait) about the importance of challenging bias and misrepresentation in the news. During this one-to-one conversation, we’ll explore what it means to be a media activist today, from addressing newsroom diversity to confronting racial stereotypes on screen. Drawing from his own experiences as a storyteller — and as an Arab American — Ahmed will share some insights on how we can better navigate the world of information and influence.
