LGBTQ+ Representation in the Media

Thursday, June 1, 2023 Online Event

Representation in media for any marginalised group is vital and necessary. It not only allows people to feel reflected and seen, but it shows the world their stories and highlights the challenges they face.

For the LGBTQ+ community, representation has increased in recent years, but often times this representation portrays stereotypes and tropes of LGBTQ+ people that are not accurate or broad enough to capture the experience, diversity and humanity of many LGBTQ+ stories.

When it comes to news media, stories can often be damning and harmful to the community overall.

This webinar is hosted by Ellen Edenbrow, I&D expert from Inclusive Employers.

Ellen joined the team as an employee in November 2021 but has worked with us as an associate delivering training for 3-4 years. Before joining the team, Ellen has had a variety of roles in the charity, public and private sector including unions, local authorities, higher education and financial services. Find out more about Ellen.
