Recently, we hosted a special webinar in partnership with GlobeNewswire on the topic of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in the newsroom.
Telling stories that are diverse and inclusive requires critical analysis of information from various perspectives and voices.
This special discussion addressed how media organizations are embracing DEI in the stories that get told and who gets the opportunity to tell them, and how much work is still to be done.
Moderated by Sylvie Harton, SVP and Global Head of Strategy, PR and IR Solutions at Notified, and featuring journalists from CBC and The Canadian Press, our conversation can benefit
both media and public relations pros, as it’s important to understand this widening lens for better media relations and reputation management.
