Say yes to media interviews

Many women and gender-diverse experts routinely decline to give media interviews for a variety of reasons: they may feel over-committed and believe the time invested won’t benefit them in any way, they may know others with more knowledge in a particular area, or they may be wary of being misquoted. But those who do regularly share their expertise with journalists often have positive experiences and appreciate the opportunity to give important context to news stories, counter common misconceptions, and share useful information.
