WIFV Podcast Gets Publicity from GDIGM

WIFV’s podcast, Media & Monuments got a shout out in a recent Equity Highlights from the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media. The Institute’s email newsletter highlighted the podcast’s second episode of its third season in which host Candice Bloch had a conversation with the Institute’s president and CEO, Madeline Di Nonno. The two discuss the Institute’s mission, the valuable research and data they collect, and how that data is used to help reveal bias and create more equality. While it began with a focus on gender – “if she can see it, she can be it” – the Institute now focuses on gender, race/ethnicity, LGBTQIA+, disability, age 50+, and body type. Listen to “Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media” to hear more about the progress that’s been made in representation, and areas that still need to see improvement.
