Do the voices in our media and education hold more weight when they are as diverse as our society? Road blocks to recruiting diversely are not a new issue, but one that is little discussed. Edmalia provides a comprehensive directory of experts that empowers both the directory members we work with, and the clients we work for.
The Directory is a valuable resource for media outlets of all sizes across all mediums. It is a searchable and managed global database of experts and professionals in a variety of fields, all of whom have experience in media settings. The directory connects broadcast, print and radio producers with commentators who have expertise on a wide range of topics and come from diverse backgrounds.
Why is the directory needed?
The role of the media in shaping our democracy is as important as it has always been. It is therefore important that the media reflects its audience by presenting a diversity of voices.
The directory connects clients with BAME people who are experts in their fields and sets up opportunities to create key long-term networks that foreground voices of colour.
“I wanted to create an agency that I’d be happy to be a client of; an agency that I could have done with 10 years ago when I directed my first documentary for a broadcaster”
– Samantha Asumadu, CEO
