In the wake of Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Meghan & Harry earlier this week, Women In Journalism wants to reaffirm our opposition to all forms of racism and discrimination and double-down on our commitment to greater representation of women from Black, Asian and all ethnic minority groups across the whole industry, at all levels.

We will be taking the findings from our research last summer into the proportion of lead news stories written by Black, Asian, and all ethnic minority group reporters and using that as a foundation for a charter for change to be shared among our members and proposed to editors.

We will also work with groups representing journalists from Black, Asian, and all ethnic minority groups to stand in solidarity with them and their work.
