Episode 6: Breaking Bias in Storytelling

In Carrie Fox’ April article about building equity and breaking bias in storytelling, she featured a story by The Atlantic’s award-winning journalist Ed Yong. Ed spent two years trying to fix the gender imbalance in his stories, and wrote about his findings. His heartbreakingly honest revelation 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 bringing Ed Yong and his partner Liz Neeley of the Story Collider to speak at our Mission Forward Spring Reception. This podcast episode features that conversation on building equity through storytelling, and what we can all learn from Ed’s powerful experience. Conversation moderated by Carrie Fox.
