Do the voices in our media and education hold more weight when they are as diverse as our society? Road blocks to recruiting diversely are not a new issue, but one that is little discussed. Edmalia provides a comprehensive directory of experts that empowers both the directory members we work with, and the clients we work for.
The Directory is a valuable resource for media outlets of all sizes across all mediums. It is a searchable and managed global database of experts and professionals in a variety of fields, all of whom have experience in media settings. The directory connects broadcast, print and radio producers with commentators who have expertise on a wide range of topics and come from diverse backgrounds.
The directory connects clients with BAME people who are experts in their fields and sets up opportunities to create key long-term networks that foreground voices of colour.
“I wanted to create an agency that I’d be happy to be a client of; an agency that I could have done with 10 years ago when I directed my first documentary for a broadcaster”
