About this Event

Media Diversity Australia (MDA) is a national not-for-profit run by journalists and media professionals. Australia is culturally and linguistically diverse, we believe Australia's media should be too.

Since our national launch in April 2017, we have been doing more state-based work and understand different regions have different challenges and opportunities.

The launch of MDA Victoria marks the second state chapter which will be run by local journalists, communication specialists and media academics.

You’ll hear from a stellar lineup of speakers including Antoinette Lattouf, Director of MDA and senior journalist at Network 10, Gold Logie winner Waleed Aly, Seven News crime reporter Sharnelle Vella, NITV reporter Madeline Hayman-Reber and ABC Life Editor Bhakthi Puvanenthiran.

Drinks will flow freely thanks to our venue sponsor RMIT and Moroccan canapes will be plentiful due to the generosity of Moroccan Soup Bar.

This event is open to journalists and program makers from across commercial, public broadcasting and community/ethnic media.

We also welcome media academics, relevant D&I practitioners and key policy makers.

Please Note: This event is not for students.
