Closing keynote: How to actually address the lack of diversity in the newsroom

The journalism industry is not as diverse as it could, and should, be. In the UK, recent studies have shown that the newsrooms are still posh, pale and privileged. The question is: what actions can create change?

In this session, we talk to Eleanor Mills, who spent 23 years with The Sunday Times before launching Noon, a new platform for women in midlife. She offers insights into what newsrooms need to do now to become more diverse and inclusive or risk losing talent to the new opportunities in the digital media landscape.
