We are pleased to announce that a new speaker will be joining Marverine Cole on the panel that will be discussing the best practices to build a diversified and sustainable newsroom.

Robyn Vinter grew up in Leeds and graduated top of her class at Leeds Beckett University almost a decade ago. She is, in her words, “one of those elusive working-class journalists” and does everything she can to support those who come from less well-represented backgrounds.

Robyn launched The Overtake, an investigative news website for millennials based in Leeds, in October 2017. In 2018, she was shortlisted for the Georgina Henry Award at the Press Awards and this year was nominated for the Paul Foot Award for her investigation into racist London nightclubs.

Before The Overtake, she wrote for publications including the i paper, The Guardian, BuzzFeed and the New Statesman.

One of the key sessions of the upcoming Newsrewired conference will be a discussion around diversity in the newsroom.

We will look at why news organisations are increasingly looking to hire from underserved communities not only as a PR exercise or because it is the right thing to do, but because it is essential to regain audiences’ trust.

We are pleased to announce that Marverine Cole, journalist, broadcaster and academic at Birmingham City University, will be joining the panel.

Marverine Cole has worked for many of Britain’s most watched and listened to broadcasters, including Sky News, ITV Central and BBC Midlands Today.

As a member of Black Journalists’ Collective UK, a network of 100+ freelance, contract & staff BAME journalists working in UK newsrooms, she took part in an initiative that urged editors across Britain to commit to improving representation in newsrooms by supporting their diversity manifesto.
