This is a funders-only webinar.


Building off insights from our report earlier this year on global media philanthropy, MIF is continuing the conversation around the international media funding picture. Because the topic sparked such vibrant conversations at our recent annual gathering of journalism funders, we’re devoting our January journalism funders webinar to discussing challenges and opportunities abroad.

In this webinar, we’ll hear from:

  • Alex Jakana, Program Officer of Global Media Partnerships at Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will give us the highlights from our small group discussions on international journalism at our annual Journalism Funders Gathering back in October.
  • Nishant Lalwani, Director of Investments of Independent Media at Luminate, will provide an overview of the International Fund for Public Interest Journalism.
  • Elisa Lees Muñoz, Executive Director of the International Women’s Media Foundation, will provide an overview of the issues of gender and diversity in the international journalism space.
  • Liz Baker, Manager of Independent Journalism & Media at Humanity United, will moderate the discussion.
