Event description

Description

After the phenomenal success of our 'Your Best Media Self' seminar last summer, Angela Mezetti is back for our greatest event yet! This month we will host our first workshop, which will prepare you to communicate effectively your research to the media. While Ms. Mezetti will remain center stage as MC for this event, the main focus will be on our carefully selected panels of media experts. They will discuss the best ways that you can convey your work through print, the internet, TV and radio.

In a world where TV is dominated by ‘manels’ and 72% of news and current affairs broadcasting time is taken by male voices, women and other underrepresented groups need to be seen and heard to equalise the balance of gender voices in media. The goal of this month’s event is to empower and inspire attendees to help achieve this balance.

The event will run as follows:


12:30 - 13:00
