We are thrilled to welcome investigative journalist and editor, Charlotte Alfred as the newest member of the One World Media Board of Trustees.
Whether through her reporting on migration, misinformation and conflict with The Guardian, Nieman Reports, and De Correspondent, or her mentoring of young journalists with the Coalition for Women in Journalism, Charlotte brings a wealth of expertise to the One World Media team.
“We are so pleased that Charlotte is joining our Board of Trustees! Her expertise and experience in international reporting is invaluable, and we look forward to working with her to continue developing One World Media’s programmes and extending our global reach.” – Gemma Bradshaw, Director of One World Media
Throughout her accomplished career, she has reported extensively from across the Middle East, Africa, Europe and the U.S., and in 2019 was nominated for the One World Media Refugee Reporting Award for her exceptional report on the Syrian refugee crisis, Dangerous Exit: Who Controls How Syrians in Lebanon Go Home.
“I’ve taken a lot of inspiration from the One World Media Award winners over the years. The Awards push us all to be bolder, more creative and more ambitious in reporting on big issues facing the world, from climate change to crises for refugees. I’m excited to work with One World Media in supporting greater diversity and fairness in how global stories are reported.” – Charlotte Alfred
As we enter what is sure to be another year of unprecedented challenges for the sector, we asked Charlotte why One World Media’s mission, to support journalists and filmmakers globally to tell stories that inform and connect us all, was so important right now:
“One irony of the pandemic is that for many of us, lockdowns have made our worlds feel much smaller even as we’re experiencing just how interconnected we are as a global community. More than ever, we need stories – painstakingly reported and creatively told – to help us make sense of the world.” – Charlotte Alfred
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
