Opening the door to diversity in the media
through mentorship & hosting
With your help we raised over £30,000 as part of our #DiversifyTheMedia campaign.
A note on our upcoming funding model
We have had some feedback this week that some of our crowdfunding supporters thought they were helping us provide free accommodation for media trainees. Our intention has never been to price anybody out, quite the opposite, or to mislead. Our aim is to diversify the media and make journalism a more affordable and accessible career. We’re working to come up with the best way to do what we do in a sustainable manner. We have clearly hit on a project that people feel passionate about. Thanks so much for all the questions and scrutiny. We are listening.

Short thread about my spare room. 👇— Jude Habib (@JudeHabib) June 16, 2019
I’m not watching the #c4debate this evening. Instead I’m getting my spare room ready for a new house guest arriving this evening. Tonight is my first night as a @PressPadUK host. https://t.co/iExYK8h2Dk#sharingeconomy #mediadiversity pic.twitter.com/7HzxucISqc
