Social media platforms are seeing civil rights leaders calling attention to rampant racism, users being confronted with misinformation, and advertisers left wondering where they can ethically advertise... and where they need to draw the line on hate speech and misinformation. Multiple headlines each day tell the story: as a business model, as a venue for engagement online, as a de facto public square leading up to a consequential election — social media is facing big challenges that demand our collective attention and creativity to solve.

This panel discussion focuses on stakeholders interested in fixing the problem. You'll hear from advertisers and entrepreneurs working on current and new social platforms, technologists who have had experience with hate speech and misinformation online, and experts in democracy and national security — all speaking to the vulnerabilities and issues with the current state of social media platforms and what direction the future needs to go.
