Being the story - How can we give a media platform to people who often find themselves unrepresented?  

There are people in our communities with direct experiences of the big social issues facing us today. They have expertise and ideas for solutions to create change. But are they being listened to? Are their voices being heard?  

A new spokespersons network aims to increase the representation and diversity of voices we hear in the media.   The programme offers practical training, media mentoring and speaking opportunities to a cohort of 20 individuals.  In this workshop let’s explore how we re-balance the voices we hear in the media.

Jude has spent over 20 years working to ensure that the voices of people who might be considered invisible or marginalised are heard and giving them a platform for their ideas. She’s done this by collaborating with people and communities who have direct experience of the issues and supporting them to share their stories and insights to have maximum impact.
