    – Creating diverse stories for a young audience

    Learn more about this talk:

    There is a notable shift in representation of minority groups and gender to be noticed in children’s media as diversity matters stronger than ever. But we can still do better in presenting all parts of our society. How do we achieve authentic diversity in order to avoid stereotypes?

    During this talk our speakers will delve into what true inclusivity means, where does it start and how we implement it in our children’s programmes.

    The session will be run on ZOOM,

    15th February, 3:00-4:00 PM CET.
