The Power of Words panel (24th of July), on the Kia Main-stage, dealt with many topical issues including, but not limited to, harassment, shaming, call-outs, privilege, being a good ally, and tone-policing.

Many of these issues can be connected to huge occurences in pop culture that have offended many people, thus proving the effects that misspeaking can have.

The panel included:
