The workshops are running from September to November 2022. The Media Trust are looking for a cohort of 15 charities for these five workshops, these charities can ideally already demonstrate an initial understanding and a commitment  an intersectional approach to their storytelling and communications. Charities working on issues such as homelessness, mental health, climate change and Artificial Intelligence are encouraged to join the workshop.

The workshops will be hosted online with one workshop taking place in person at a location convenient to participants.

The topics covered in this workshop will consist of:

  • defining intersectionality
  • key principles for framing stories through an intersectional lens
  • the effective use of data
  • working collaboratively with other charities
  • how to pitch intersectional stories to the media

The workshops will also give the oppurtunity for peer networking and a speed pitching event, during this event charities will receive feedback from experienced journalists on how to get their stories into the media.

The co-authors of Telling a Different Story (which was written for Lankelly Chase Foundation), Dawn Hart and Jon Flinn, will be the principle trainers for this course.

Applications for charities to join this programme are currently open and close on Sunday 7 August 2022.
