This panel will cover decolonizing the media, addressing problematic headlines, and improving storytelling about Africa. We'll discuss the vital role of editors in shaping news narratives whilst addressing challenges responsibly. How can editors highlight the importance of ethical storytelling and diverse perspectives in newsrooms? We'll also explore how they can adapt to global trends, such as the demand for positive news and the influence of social media content. What concrete steps, tools, and networks are necessary to make this happen? We aim to leverage these insights to reshape stereotypical narratives to get better stories and stories told about Africa. This ensures a more representative coverage of the continent in global media.

Organised in association with Africa No Filter.
