ABC News calls out for Murdoch female expert commentary

Published: 24th September 2019

Murdoch experts are being encouraged to participate in an ABC News project to improve representation of women across their programming.

The 50:50 Project hopes to encourage more women from all backgrounds and across industries to nominate themselves for inclusion in their growing database of expert talent.

This database is used extensively by ABC interview producers, talent bookers and journalists across news and radio in WA and across Australia to identify people to participate in interviews and provide commentary or engage in discussions across our digital and broadcast platforms.

All nominees contacted by our experienced producers and talent bookers will be supported through the process so a lack of media experience is not an impediment.

If you are a subject matter expert in any topic who identifies as a woman, you can participate in this project by completing a nomination form.
