Finally, an end to the #allmalepanel?

#EventprofReads: Week 74

Here’s this week’s #EventprofReads roundup, curated for you by The Guide to Events on Twitter and the Eventprofs London LinkedIn group. Please share with colleagues and add your comments. We hope you enjoy!  Here’s what we learned this week…

That Ireland has voted decisively to legalise abortion, from The New York Times:

“…the people have spoken and the people have said: We want a modern constitution for a modern country, and that we trust women and that we respect them to make the right decisions and the right choices about their own health care.”

What the best (and most desperate) GDPR emails looked like, in The Guardian:

“…If you have previously expressly consented to receive emails from a company, that consent would remain valid under the new legal framework. There are also five other justifications for a company processing your personal data emailing you – contract, legal obligation, vital interests, public interest and legitimate interests.”

That there is trouble ahead for Facebook as millennial and Gen-Xers abandon the social network, in Fast Company:

“…it can’t just post this information on a blog that no one besides a small group of media reporters reads. (Its FAQ post got a whopping 7 comments.) It needs to put information where people will see it—like, oh I don’t know—in their News Feeds.”

What the Duchess of Sussex’s charitable priorities will be, in Bustle:

“…Markle’s work as a feminist is outwardly praised and stated. Traditionally, the royals have avoided making political statements, but in a surprising (and impressive) move, the palace appears to be embracing Markle’s beliefs.”

How new technology could help publishers move past Facebook dependency, in Fast Company:

“…Outbrain, Taboola, and RevContent all track billions of clicks each month, and can track people’s content preferences in a similar way. And they’ve all launched tools that allow publishers to turn their mobile sites into a Facebook-lite experience through an infinite feed of personalized content.”

And finally…536 reasons not to have an All Male Panel at a UK tech event, in techworld:

“…With relatively little effort we found tons of impressive vendor executives, chief information officers, startup founders, developers, technologists, lawyers…just to name a few sectors.”
