Media Responses to Humanitarian Crisis

The timing is prescient — and  little eerie.

On February 28, the Production Directorate lent a hand to do the video for this fantastic event, “Why Not?  Humanitarian Crisis and Media,” sponsored by CauseShift and Oxfam International.   It was held at Young & Rubicam’s Nye Leadership Center in New York City and featured a roster of distinguished panelists, including UNICEF’s Chief of Internet, TV, Radio, & Image Section, Stephen Cassidy and Columbia Journalism School Dean Sreee Sreenivasan.   The conversation was moderated by author Brian Reich, SVP & Global Editor at Edelman Digital.

As it happens, the issues discussed could not possibly be more relevant and important to events unfolding in Japan right now — both for media professionals and anyone interested in learning more about the most helpful way to gather information and respond to these kinds of crises.   And, being a social media event, the dialogue is ongoing and evolving in real time.

Check it out, share with anyone who may be interested, and feel free to join the conversation.
