Representing the inaugural of a series of annual media conferences, the two day event will set the stage for a unique collection of voices to share ideas and opinions on this very current and controversial issue, while providing the opportunity to network with peers from industry and politics.
A number of leading topics by keynote speakers will include:
o The historical relationship between the black community and the media
o Media discrimination against the Muslim communities after 9/11 and 7/7
o The role of the Press Complaints Commission
o Cultural Diversity Public Service Broadcasting and the National Conversation
o How the lack of knowledge of communities leads to discrimination
The conference addresses all of these issues across a range of media. It aims not merely to answer questions, but to provide a forum for discussion and debate and quite possibly a solution. It is expected to attract media researchers and producers, leaders of religious and cultural groups, members of local and national Government and blue chip companies.
Discrimination of Minorities in the Media will take place at London’s Business Design Centre, in the borough of Islington.
