Racism is a barrier to achieving cultural diversity in media and a culturally diverse media is important for civil society constitution, community engagement, and public discourse formation. The “Building an Anti-Racism Strategy for Canadian Broadcasting: Conversation & Convergence” consultative events will confront barriers experienced by Racialized Canadians (including Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour) in media access, representation, and employment-related practices. The deliberative process guiding these events will develop and disseminate an anti-racism strategy that aims to impact the future of media practices by reducing barriers to participation in broadcasting policy-making for Racialized Canadians.
