Media diversity initiative among B.C. projects to get cash

The Canadian Press interviewed Ayesha S. Chaudhry, a UBC professor in Islamic and gender studies, about a project to increase diversity in Vancouver’s news media.

She said “it’s really important that we have a diversity of voices, not just in terms of gender, but class, sexuality and race, so that the people who are watching the news see themselves represented and their concerns and their perspectives are also captured.”

The CP story appeared on CTV and in the Vancouver Sun.
