HELPING BLACK, ASIAN AND OTHER ETHNIC TALENT THRIVE

CONNECT AND SHINE A LIGHT ON THE MANY GREAT INITIATIVES THAT ARE HAPPENING

The representation of Black, Asian and other ethnic talent in media remains significantly below the communities in which we live. The population of people from Black, Asian and other ethnic backgrounds in London is currently at 41%, yet in agencies, the figure hovers around 13%, whilst media owners do not even have a centralised forum for collecting or sharing their data. Consequently, most media industry events remain a sea of white faces, with the odd non-white face.

 

Media for All was set up to help encourage more Black, Asian and other ethnic talent into media and provide a support and mentoring network to ensure that this talent flourishes.

MEFA Matters fortnightly webinar.

A chance to ask the questions that you may feel embarrassed to ask. A safe space to share lived experiences and immediate challenges. A place to discuss how we can create more diverse work places, effect real change and build a better industry for everyone. Because we can only make things better if we start talking about the real issues and create a platform for conversation and education.
