Helping journalists, producers and conference planners find the female guests, speakers and expert sources they need.

 

Remember when a conference full of all-male panels was the norm?

Today such lapses are widely condemned, and many invitees refuse to participate unless diverse views are included.

With the support of donors like you, we’re expanding the scope of that change, reminding news media that in 2020, it’s unacceptable to continue relying on male sources 70% of the time.

The absence of women’s voices affects what’s considered normal and important; including our perspectives changes what gets prioritized and funded.

Informed Opinions has made a measurable difference:

  • We’ve motivated and trained thousands of women to engage with media.
  • We’ve made diverse experts easier for journalists to find.
  • Dozens of the women we feature are now being contacted and quoted every week.

Your donation fuels that change. Your contribution helps to ensure our daughters’ voices are as valued and included in Canadian society as our sons’.
