Ermahgerd: Cyberbullying

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Kristin and Dannielle, founders of the advice website and youth outreach organization Everyone Is Gay, will discuss the role of cyber bullying in our online communities and share stories from several youth who have experienced cyber bullying firsthand. The anonymity allowed in online conversations can foster aggression in many forms, and it can often seem as if the cyberbullying target has no way of responding proactively. Hinging on their work with LGBTQ youth and their own experience with social media, Kristin and Dannielle will focus their discussion on what young people, youth service providers, and social media developers can do to address these situations. The presentation will hinge on the stories and input of young people in order to specifically examine the most pressing aspects of online communication and its potential to not only foster connections but also encourage aggressive individual attacks.
