Episode 6: Breaking Bias in Storytelling

Recently, I wrote an article about building equity and breaking bias in storytelling, in which I featured the story by The Atlantic’s award-winning journalist Ed Yong, who spent two years trying to fix the gender imbalance in his stories. Ed’s heartbreakingly honest revelation, and several others like it, spurred our desire to dig in deeper on ways that all communicators can build equity and break bias in their storytelling.  Part of digging deeper was for us to bring Ed Yong and his partner Liz Neeley of the Story Collider to speak at our Mission Forward Spring Reception.  This podcast episode brings you back to that conversation, on building equity through storytelling, and what we can all learn from Ed’s powerful experience.
