Hollaback!, Kairos Fellowship, and Mozilla are collaborating across the social justice and technology sectors to identify and build best-practices so that organizations can effectively and successfully support their staff + volunteers who experience online harassment. The long-term goal of this is to reduce the impact of harassment experienced by staff, and thus reduce staff turnover, the impact of trauma on the team, and to build the internal capacity for resilience.

By developing this framework with others, we are working with stakeholders who will put these guidelines to use and share them with other like-minded organizations. This group looks to:

  • Develop concrete and technical actions to support staff/volunteers at the moment they experience harassment.
  • Build a framework for anti-harassment infrastructure to prevent and educate staff about online harassment.
  • Provide guidelines for senior level staff to articulate and express their stance against online harassment.

In this session we want to share the work we have, invite constructive feedback, and join our professional working group to continue building and share this work with others.
