A leading minority rights campaigner at the publisher of Cosmopolitan and Elle believes inclusivity in media is about conversation. Dionne Maxwell, who works at Hearst Publications UK told Voice of London exclusively about how she setĀ up the BAME or Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups network at the media giant. https://twitter.com/DMpire/status/1056481712069324800 She says the network is about education and not pressuring people to increase diversity, but getting them to understand the benefits. As UK celebrated Black History last month - Maxwell, pointed out that a better understanding of Black history is required as "reading African stories or making badges in the library do not constitute as celebrations".
