Partnering for diversity with #AMMPE2018

We worked closely with the Worldwide Association for Women Journalists and Writers (AMMPE) to offer bursaries for their XXIII Congress in London Nov 6-9th, 2018. We have made it possible to bring 8 UK-based journalism students, who study outside of London and the south-east, down to London to participate. These students have been provided with free accommodation lodging with London-based journalists from leading news organisations and will also receiving mentorship and guidance during their stay. In this way we have made their participation in the conference, a valuable networking and learning opportunity, possible.
