Media Diversity Australia is a nation wide not-for-profit organisation run by journalists and communications professionals. We are working to make our news media more reflective of all Australians.


  • Provide support and networking opportunities for journalists and media professionals from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

  • Conduct empirical research about ethnic and cultural diversity in Australian media.

  • Work in collaboration with media outlets on policies and strategies.

  • Foster inclusive discussion that respects different viewpoints.

  • Recognise the importance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander roles in the media.

  • Stimulate public discourse on issues related to cultural diversity including religion, gender, disability, income, age, geography and socio-economic backgrounds.


We aim to carry out these goals in a manner that is collaborative, inclusive, honest and respectful. We believe in core Australian values, including multiculturalism and a fair go for all.
