EIE President Donna Rice Hughes will presenting Internet Safety 101SM at this year's Convergence Summit, a Conference focused on developing solutions to the emerging challenges of educating and protecting young people and families from the harms of sexually graphic content and sexual exploitation through mobile devices and applications.
Mobile technology and social media are changing society in remarkably exciting ways—they are also exposing young people to shockingly destructive sexual content, behavior, and exploitation.
To address effectively the convergence of new technology, pornography, prostitution, and human trafficking, leaders in government, industry, education, psychotherapy, and religious communities must themselves converge in their understanding of the issues and their development of solutions.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn, share, network, and participate with leaders from across the nation in crafting solutions to some of the most important issues facing our society in the twenty-first century.
