Currently, in Australian News and TV according to Media Diversity Australia’s Report ‘Who gets to tell Australian Stories 2.0?’, there is an over-representation of people of Anglo-Celtic background- with a statistic of 78%. Whilst the non-european background remain under-represented.

Alana Su-Navratil Spoke with Mariam Veiszadeh, Chief Executive Officer at Media Diversity Australia to discuss the lack of representation of people of Indigenous background. Even though there was a slight increase in representation, she mentioned that this increase was partially due to the ‘recycling’ of individuals in news Media.

She further added that what we need to see in our media is not diversity but Inclusion.
