Media mentoring program launched
A unique mentoring program launched on 21 September 2012 aims to increase multicultural diversity within the Australian media.
Designed by the Ethnic Communities’ Council of Victoria (ECCV) and implemented by SBS and Deakin University, the program will support students from a culturally and linguistically diverse and/or refugee background in the media program at Deakin University.
The program is intended to support students during studies, assist them to develop their career plans, equip them with hands-on skills, provide networking opportunities and facilitate pathways to careers in media.
It is also envisaged that in the longer term it will contribute to diversity in the Australian media.
