Gap Analysis Yields New Projects, New Partnerships

At the Internet Freedom Festival in Valencia Spain, the International Women’s Media Foundation, the Committee to Protect Journalists and Troll-Busters.com hosted a 2 ½ hour session to create strategies for supporting women journalists online.

Dr. Michelle Ferrier leads gap analysis.
Michelle Ferrier leads the workshop in crowdsourcing a gap analysis of organizations working in online abuse.

Dr. Michelle Ferrier, founder of TrollBusters and an associate professor in the E.W Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University, led a design-thinking workshop of digital security advocates to identify needs and global activities. She used a matrix that examined impacts on journalists before, during and after an attack and the research, education, policy and technical work being done to support freedom of expression, digital security and other supports for journalists.

Attendees were invited to contribute organizations and projects working at the intersections of the matrix. Participants then suggested projects to serve gaps. Top projects were further developed in small groups, identifying concept, impact and next steps.
