On the 9th of September, the Guardian Foundation will host an action-focused discussion "How do we really diversify the newsroom?"

"We all know the importance of representation and equal opportunities in the workplace. All too often, incentives to expose diversity inequality within the media, while well-meaning, conclude with predictable and vague promises that something needs to be done. Programmes such as those led by The Guardian Foundation have pioneered newsroom talent - but what more should the industry do to encourage, and retain, talent from all backgrounds?" - the organizers said.

The Guardian Founfdation's panel is to hold a positive discussion about diversifying of workforce  which is a critical element for success of any news organisation willing to truly reflect the matters and to serve society. Gary Younge, professor of sociology at The University of Manchester and former Guardian editor-at-large, will be chairing our panel, which includes Guardian leader writer Tania Branigan and current Scott Trust bursary recipient Hibaq Farah. Further speaker to be announced..
