About Ben Bradlee, Jr.

This year’s Appetite for Advocacy features keynote Ben Bradlee, Jr. who spent 25 years with The Boston Globe and as deputy managing editor he oversaw the Globe's Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of the sexual abuse scandal in the Catholic Church. These investigations were portrayed in the 2015 film “Spotlight”, which won two Academy Awards, for best original screenplay and best picture.
Bradlee will share about giving a voice to the voiceless and uncovering the dark truth of child abuse that happens in many organizations and systems.
