    The Oslo Desk
Hosted by The Oslo Desk to spark a thought-provoking discussion on rethinking Norwegian journalism through the lens of news producers and news consumers from immigrant or racialised backgrounds. News media plays a key role in shaping our thoughts and informing us on events that are happening in our society. How do we prevent media bias and obtain media representation so that we do not impact marginalised groups negatively in our Norwegian society?
In this panel, we bring together journalists, editors, diversity and inclusion specialists and researchers to explore solutions for this topic, and answering the fundamental question -‘What bold moves can Norwegian newsrooms take to become more inclusive for news consumers and news producers from racialised communities?’
There will be no livestreaming.
