Robyn Vinter, editor-in-chief at The Overtake on diversity, business growth and investigative journalism for millennials
At Newsrewired this coming November, we will hear from four newsrooms that are hiring diverse talent because there are genuinely good business reasons to do so, like bolstering your reporting and being trusted by the public.
One of those practising this idea is Robyn Vinter, editor-in-chief, The Overtake, an investigative journalism website for millennials and Gen-Zers run by a team of reporters based in Leeds, Yorkshire.
In the first two years of running the publication, Vinter has built a part-time team of nine from scratch and created a platform which aspires to be “the opposite of the straight, white, middle-aged, middle-class mainstream media”.
Vinter spoke to Journalism.co.uk about The Overtake, the advantages of forming a diverse newsroom and what delegates can expect from hearing her speak at Newsrewired.
Russell Contreras, reporter with The Associated Press, will be joining Newsrewired panel to bring a US perspective and fresh ideas on how to make your media organisation thrive by attracting diverse talents. He will also speak about the strategies The Associated Press has used in its newsrooms, what has worked and what has not amid changing demographics.

Deepfakes – doctored videos fabricating footage of what looks like real people – have been around for years. But the journalism community is now starting to take seriously their potential to damage trust in the media and democracy.
Last week we announced that Journalism.co.uk and Google News Initiative have partnered to offer 30 local journalists the opportunity to attend the Newsrewired conference. We have received nearly 50 applications in one week alone, which shows how much demand for support there is from bootstrapped, regional newsrooms.
