The International Journalists’ Network (IJNet) and Media Diversity Institute are organizing the webinar "How the news media can advance diversity and inclusion in 2021 and beyond" at 10 a.m. EDT on Thursday, May 13.

The webinar will offer a solutions-oriented conversation about diversity and inclusion in the media, discussing why representation in the news industry must continue to be a priority today, what journalists and news organizations in the United States and the United Kingdom can learn from one another, and what recent progress, if any, has been made over the past year that can be built upon moving forward.

Panelists include Krissah Thompson, The Washington Post’s managing editor of diversity and inclusion; Darshna Soni, Channel 4 home affairs correspondent in the U.K.; and Selymar Colón, president and editor in chief of Frame ONE Strategies and co-founder of Diversifying Journalism; moderated by Gary Younge, former U.S.-based correspondent for The Guardian and award-winning author, broadcaster and professor of sociology at the University of Manchester in England.
