Su-Mei Thompson shares insights from a recent survey that reveals the effect of the coronavirus crisis on charity communications and how Media Trust will procced to reach for support form media and the creative industry.
Su-Mei Thompson, Chief Executive of the Media Trust unpacks the key action points for change. "At Media Trust, we are so encouraged by the energy and enthusiasm on the part of everyone who came, but we aren’t underestimating how challenging it will be to achieve the kind of progress we’d like to see. It’s clear we need systemic change not just one or two examples of great ads or disabled presenters or dramas featuring disabled actors. We’re hoping the Reframing Disability event will be the start of concerted and collaborative action on the part of the media and creative sector to reframe how disability is represented in the media".
