Event description
In partnership with The Guardian Foundation, join us for an action-focussed discussion on how to improve diversity in the news media.

About this event

We all know the importance of representation and equal opportunities in the workplace. All too often, incentives to expose diversity inequality within the media, while well-meaning, conclude with predictable and vague promises that something needs to be done. Programmes such as those led by The Guardian Foundation have pioneered newsroom talent - but what more should the industry do to encourage, and retain, talent from all backgrounds?

In this livestreamed event, our panel will be putting forward a positive discussion that is based on the cornerstone that a diverse workforce is critical to the success of any news organisation that wants to truly reflect and serve society. Gary Younge, professor of sociology at The University of Manchester and former Guardian editor-at-large, will be chairing our panel, which includes Guardian leader writer Tania Branigan and current Scott Trust bursary recipient Hibaq Farah. Further speaker to be announced.

The Guardian Foundation is an independent charity that aims to increase access to the media for underrepresented voices. To find out more about their work and to support them, visit here.
