April 21: Media Diversified Directory launch

On April 21 at 6.30pm the London Press Club will join with ESI Media to co-host the launch of the new Media Diversified Directory,  a searchable and managed database of BAME experts and professionals from a variety of fields, all of whom have experience in media settings.

The launch will be marked with a drinks reception at Northcliffe House – home not only to ESI Media’s London Live, Evening Standard and Independent titles but also to dmg media’s Mail and Metro titles. The guest speaker will be Pat Younge, founder and director of WeCreate Associates and former chief creative officer at the BBC.

“News channels have become increasingly aware of the importance of hearing from a diverse range of contributors,” said Tami Hoffman, Sky News head of interviews. “There have been visible improvements  in getting more women onto news programmes, but more work needs to be done to cover other types of diversity. Having a directory of experts is a valuable tool in alerting producers to a wider pool of contributors.”

Places are limited but London Press Club members can request a space by emailing info@londonpressclub.co.uk.
