“Noteworthy Women”

Use the Power of Media to Amplify Unheard Voices

We produced innovative programs to showcase composers and artists from different races, nationalities, and gender identities for Noteworthy Women, Public Radio’s first national radio series about women and music.

The case study focuses on a gay college student’s struggles to find a place and voice in TV and film beyond the existing binary structure; and identifying funding and support from companies that don’t exploit workers or discriminate in the workplace.

  2. How can TV, podcasts and social media be used as a tool for advocacy for diversity on multiple levels?
