"New Media: Giving a Voice to the Underdogs," Panel at WIL Economic Forum
How important is it to give a voice to women through media? At the 2018, WIL Forum, Briar Prestidge, CEO of PR and media production company, Briar Prestidge International, facilitated a panel on new media and was joined by Ariel Wengroff, Executive Producer of the Emmy nominated VICELAND, and Maysoun Odeh Ganget, Founder of Nisaa FM.
They discussed how women are positioned in the media, and whether they think they are accurately portrayed. As social media has given everyone a voice, many people in the audience expressed they feel there has been a shift with social media.
Briar also asked the panelists what the best way to produce media is to create awareness and where they saw the future of media going.
