Turia Pitt Speaks On Why Diversity In Mainstream Media Is More Than Just Ticking A Box

It’s International Women’s Day, and we’re celebrating by bringing you an exclusive interview with our very own Turia Pitt, who spoke about challenging the media industry’s perception of beauty.

“It’s kind of bullshit because it’s 2023, and diversity still very much seems to be an afterthought or like an exercise in just ticking the box” 

TURIA PITT SPEAKS ABOUT CHALLENGING THE STANDARD OF “BEAUTY” IN MEDIA

We asked the women (and a couple of men) behind your favourite podcasts and radio shows to share about a time they’ve #EmbracedEquity and challenged gender stereotypes, called out discrimination, drawn attention to bias and sought out inclusion. We’re going to hear when it worked, when it didn’t, and what they learned from the experience. 

You’ll hear from Carrie Bickmore, Jess Rowe, Sarah Maree Cameron,  Fifi Box, Turia Pitt, Natarsha Belling, Jamila Rizvi, Steph Claire Smith & Laura Henshaw, Erin Molan, Lama Zakharia, Loren Barry and Kymba Cahill along with Tommy Little, Brendan Fevola and Nick Cody

International Women’s Day has shared the meaning of the theme this year as:

The IWD 2023 #EmbraceEquity campaign theme seeks to get the world talking about why “equal opportunities are no longer enough” – and can in fact be exclusionary, rather than inclusive.

What does #EmbraceEquity mean to you? Let us know on our LiSTNR Entertainment Facebook page.
