In 2019, there are far fewer women than men being quoted and featured in the news media. It is crucial for newsrooms to give their audiences a more representative view of society and draw upon diverse voices to tell stories.
Join Women in Journalism and Bloomberg for an evening discussion looking at how newsrooms are taking action to increase the representation of women and diverse sources, what still needs to be done, and why it matters.
When : 28th October 2019. Time : 5.30- 8.30
Where : Bloomberg LP, 3 Queen Victoria Street, London, EC4N 4TQ
