A campaign for diversity, equality and inclusion in the media

News publishers launching campaign for diversity, equality and inclusion

Men outnumber women in bylines, as protagonists in stories, and as subject-matter experts by 4:1. Women are even less present in top editorial and non-editorial management positions, holding on average 20% of the top editorial or business management roles in news media around the globe, World Association of News Publishers says in a call for increased equality, diversity and inclusion.

“We, as an industry, must commit to doing more to accelerate the necessary change, the organisation’s CEO Vincent Peyrègne writes and refers to inspiration from Swiss publisher Ringer’s project EqualVoices that measures and promotes women in the news. .

WAN-IFRA calls on members:

  • To support gender equality, diversity and inclusion within our organisations, particularly within leadership positions.
  • Introduce measures in our organisation to drive equality and create safe, healthy and representative newsrooms.
  • To make women, as well as underrepresented or vulnerable groups, more visible in the media.”
