Home pageHire More Migrants, Experts Urge Media Bosses


Australian media organisations have been urged to recruit more journalists from new and emerging migrant communities in an effort to combat “thinly-veiled racism and misrepresentation” in the mainstream media.

The recommendation was among a wide-ranging series of actions proposed at the inaugural National Conference on Media, Migration and Integration, co-hosted by Africa Media Australia and the National Ethnic and Multicultural Broadcasters Council (NEMBC) in Melbourne earlier this month.

The two-day conference brought together prominent politicians, media representatives, and multicultural specialists to discuss key issues related to the representation of migrant communities in the mainstream Australian media.
