Join us on September 28th at 12:00PM as we welcome the Honorable Ellen E. McCarthy to Harvard Kennedy School for a discussion on disinformation and truth in media as part of our latest Intelligence Seminar. In the world of information warfare, combating disinformation requires a joint strategy guiding a wide range of actors, including academia, tech companies, non profits, and entertainment, working together. This conversation will touch on recent work done by Truth in Media, a new initiative to distill fact from fiction in an increasingly challenging world of misinformation and disinformation.
Hon. Ellen McCarthy is the Chairwoman and CEO of the Truth in Media Cooperative and Noodle Labs. She has over three decades of national security service in a variety of leadership roles that span numerous intelligence organizations and disciplines, most recently as the lead of one of the U.S. Intelligence Community's 18 agencies. As the Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of Intelligence and Research, she reported to the Secretary of State and led a team that provided intelligence support for foreign policy purposes.
The discussion will be moderated by Lauren Zabierek, Belfer Center Executive Director and Maria Robson-Morrow, Program Manager for the Intelligence Project. This hybrid event is on the record and the virtual option is open to the public. The in-person option is open only to Harvard students, staff, faculty and fellows. Registration is required. Please note that in person registration is via the Zoom link; please select the in person option.
Food will be provided at the event.
