Converge expressed its support for the members of the press in Cebu as they zero in on the challenges and solutions to the current state of community journalism during the recently concluded Stet Media Scope (Conversations with Stet) Forum, held in celebration of Cebu Press Freedom Week.
Vice President and Head of Corporate Communications and Public Relations Jay-Anne R. Encarnado delivered a message of support to campaign for safer online spaces in this digital age.
She underscored the initiatives conducted by Converge to make the internet safer, especially for women and children.
“As an internet service provider, we are your partners in delivering vital information to our people. With our fiber infrastructure, which is one of the most expansive in the country, we are also your partners in ensuring that the internet is a safe place for everyone,” she said.
Encarnado noted that Converge is committed to blocking illicit sites so that no criminal acts, such as online sexual abuse and exploitation of children (OSAEC), will pass through its network.
Likewise, she said that through the leadership of Converge President and Co-Founder Maria Grace Uy, the company has become an active advocate of women’s empowerment.
Present during the event were World Association of News Publishers (WAN-Ifra) Women in News (WIN) Director for Southeast Asia Khin Thandar Htay, Rappler Co-founder and Executive Editor Glenda Gloria, and British Ambassador to the Philippines Laure Beaufils.
They led the discussions on developing safe places for journalists, adapting to Artificial Intelligence (AI), devising new business models to support newsrooms and journalists, and combating disinformation by practicing good digital hygiene.
The event was organized by Stet, the organization of active and retired women journalists in the province of Cebu.
