On Friday, Meyer moderated a panel entitled “Future threats: New avenues of investigative reporting in the fast-changing world of emerging global crises.” The talk brought together Pulitzer Prize winner Deborah Nelson, VICE News Environmental Editor Robert Eshelman and Pace University Senior Fellow for Environmental Understanding Andrew Revkin in conversation about how they are using cutting-edge storytelling tools and technologies to craft narratives about emerging national security issues.

Meyer participated in the conference’s “Career Roundtable” on what employers want to see in job applicants.

Meyer also served as a judge for the 2015 IRE Golden Padlock Award.

According to IRE’s website, the award recognizes “the most secretive publicly-funded agency or person in the United States.” This year’s honor went to the Massachusetts State Police.

The Board of Directors and Executive Committee elections were conducted during the group’s annual conference, which drew a crowd of 1,800 journalists from across the globe and featured New York Times reporter and Medill alum James Risen as keynote speaker.
