Andrea Weckerle on CiviliNation
Andrea Weckerle founded and leads CiviliNation, a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing online hostility and character assassination. Andrea is also the author of Civility in the Digital Age: How Companies and People Can Triumph over Haters, Trolls, Bullies and Other Jerks. It doesn’t pull any punches and instead lays out, in often blunt language and with hard-hitting examples, the negative behavior frequently found online. However, with the right approach, willingness and tools, the Internet can be an embracing place where people safely come together to share ideas and work through some of the most difficult issues of today without allowing the negative forces to take over. The book offers real-world solutions for how to turn things around.
