What does the future of journalism look like?
In 2016, a damning survey conducted by Neil Thurman of City University London found diversity in the British journalism industry to be shockingly low. Of almost 30,000 journalists sampled, 94% were white. Moreover, women tend to be underpaid or under-promoted within the industry.
At our latest event, we were joined by Gary Younge to discuss the future of the journalism industry. Gary’s keynote speech was followed by an insightful discussion on the state of authentic diversity and representation within the sector, while also more broadly exploring the challenges that new tech and independent companies pose to mainstream media.
