All Sizes Fit is a positive body image campaign that aims to increase body positivity and decrease the social pressures associated with obtaining an "ideal body." All Sizes Fit focuses on three principles:
Attention: Be in touch with your body and its signals. Your body is excellent at regulating and letting you know what it needs in order to perform optimally.
Appreciation: Appreciate everything your body allows you to do and the pleasure it provides. It is because of your body that you can engage in the activities you love and enjoy what life has to offer.
Acceptance: Accept all the assets you have rather than longing for what you do not. Much of your body composition is predetermined by your genetics.
All entries due by Wednesday, February 13, 2019. After we receive your piece we will send another form for you to complete where you can share more about your piece (e.g. title, artist statement, etc.)

Participants will also get an overview of the bigger picture, during the final session where each track will report back their key takeaways to the wider group; and also hear the lessons from the other tracks.

In America, having a mental illness has become a crime. One in four fatal police shootings involves a person with mental illness. The country’s three largest providers of mental health are not hospitals, but jails. As many as half the people in US jails and prisons have a psychiatric problem.
In her book, Insane: America’s Criminal Treatment of Mental Illness, journalist Alisa Roth goes deep inside the criminal justice system to reveal how America’s tough-on-crime policies have transformed it into a warehouse for people with mental illness, one where prisoners are denied proper treatment, abused, and punished in ways that make them sicker. She introduces us to ordinary people whose untreated mental illnesses drive them repeatedly into the justice system—and in some cases, to their deaths.
As a 2014-2015 Soros Justice Fellow, Roth spent a year investigating the growing role of jails and prisons as our de facto mental healthcare system. She has visited the country’s three largest psychiatric care providers, Rikers Island in New York City, the Cook County Jail in Chicago, and the Los Angeles County Jail in LA, and her research has included dozens of interviews with prisoners and their families, psychiatrists, lawyers, wardens, corrections officers and others.
"The 2018 Edelman Trust Barometer reveals a world of seemingly stagnant distrust. People’s trust in business, government, NGOs, and media remained largely unchanged from 2017 — 20 of 28 markets surveyed now lie in distruster territory, up one from last year. Yet dramatic shifts are taking place at the market level and within the institution of media."
The School of Journalism and Communication is partnering with Edelman to update the findings on the public's trust in media, businesses, politicians, etc. Come join us and learn about what the Trust Barometer has found.
From Design Week 2019 Portland -

The term podcasting has grown in popularity steadily the last couple of decades and is currently experiencing a significant boom in both the number of producers and listeners. As with many emerging and evolving industries, standards and guidelines remain elusive while experimentation is wonderfully abundant. From daily news segments to fictional long-form stories, the growing number of high-quality podcasts is vying for the attention of the listening public. In this session, Design for the Ear, we will present and discuss the current trends and needs to help us better understand this new ecosystem of podcasts and audio storytelling.
This panel will discuss how there is a low barrier to entry into podcasting, key steps to creating a unique podcast, and how it can promote brands with content to be forward-thinking.

From ListenUp EDU 2019 -
"Higher education is facing a crisis of trust. When members of your community feel heard, invested in, and served by your institution, they’ll trust you, volunteer, and donate. Without their trust, our institutions can't survive. The stakes couldn’t be higher: Democracy and the next generation’s economic mobility depend on higher education's ability to get this right.
At ListenUp EDU, we will ditch the typical conference agenda of prosaic presentations and sleepy panels to chart the path ahead for higher ed together. Join us to explore how adopting a culture of listening, service, and trust-building can accelerate student success outcomes, alumni engagement, marketing and communications, and advancement.
Learn listening and service strategies for creating lasting change at your institution
Help build a movement to solve higher ed's most daunting problems
Form lasting working relationships with the best of the best in higher ed

Sue Robinson will be talking about her new book: Networked News, Racial Divides: How Power and Privilege Shape Public Discourse in Progressive Communities.
Sue's current multi-phased, multi-method book (Networked News, Racial Divides: How Power & Privilege Shape Progressive Communities) researches how digital platforms enable and constrain citizens – especially those in marginalized communities – who produce and share information in the public sphere about racial achievement disparities in the K-12 education system. Using Bourdieu’s field theory as its theoretical framework, the book is meant to be a guide for journalists, politicians, activists and others on how to navigate information networks to improve public deliberation.
A full professor with tenure, Sue Robinson joined the UW-Madison faculty at the School of Journalism and Mass Communication in January 2007 and now holds the Helen Firstbrook Franklin Professor of Journalism research chair. As a scholar, she explores how journalists and news organizations adopt new information communication technologies to report on public affairs in new forms and formats as well as how audiences and individuals can use the technologies for civic engagement. Central to her work is the consideration of information flow as it moves through specific media ecologies and networks at the local community level.
