Remember the Panama Papers? This session is about a side of the story you probably didn't hear about yet: the effects on the mental health of its team members. Mar Cabra, the former head of data at the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, will join us to share how she burnt out after winning the Pulitzer prize and what you can do to avoid the same happening to you.
In a very practical workshop, she will build on her experience teaching thousands of journalists with her nonprofit, The Self-Investigation, which promotes mental health and wellbeing in the media.
Mar is one of the co-founders of The Self-Investigation. She is a Pulitzer prize-winning journalist, digital wellness educator and Acumen fellow working on raising awareness on how technology is changing the way we interact with ourselves, each other and as a society. She writes a column in Spanish newspaper El Confidencial on this topic. She’s committed to creating a healthier working culture in journalism to prevent others from burning out like she did after leading the technology and data work for the Panama Papers investigation.
