Organisations and charities fighting to improve diversity and representation in the media

We as PressPad are working hard to lower the social and financial barrier of entry into journalism and to ultimately diversify the media.

However, we know we are not alone in our cause and we want to show our appreciation and raise awareness of other charities and organisations that are fighting to improve representation and inclusivity in the media. For this, we have created a list of organisations focusing on creating fair and equal opportunities for those who are disadvantaged and underrepresented; and are challenging the homogeneity of voices in the media worldwide.

PressPad’s first intern: Jabir’s blog

The story of my career would be incomplete without PressPad, who gave me this priceless opportunity to showcase my talent. I explored London, met my role models Lyse Doucet and Stephen Sucker, reported to millions of audiences in Africa, and ultimately signed a freelance contract with the BBC.
