This May, the TRiBE’s Women of Colour in the Media Event
TRiBE’s Women of Colour in the Media is a great opportunity to continue the discussion surrounding the visibility of women of colour, particularly in the media.
Join us for an evening of conversation lead by our panelists, a group of women of colour currently work in different forms of media with a multitude of experiences and opinions to express. And don’t worry, you’ll get a chance to make your voice heard too with an audience Q & A and a networking & nibbles session afterwards.
It’s set to be a night of conversation, laughter and passion which we’re hoping will lead to a whole lot of action.
We hope to see you there!
