Why do we need social mobility in journalism?

We are tackling social mobility in UK broadcast newsrooms so that the news stories which are told truly reflect our society; that young people who may never have considered journalism as a career can champion the diverse stories they have lived.

In the UK the lack of social mobility within journalism causes significant problems, with the media operating in an ‘echo chamber’. Our work aims to help break down the barriers to entry and progression in the industry and to unlock the potential of disadvantaged young people across the UK.
