Aptly published on International Women's Day, this week we speak to Anatu Mahama, Editor in Chief of The Academic Woman. Founded in 2018 with the backdrop of the centenary of women's suffrage, Mahama wanted to create a space where women could share their stories and discuss key issues like diversity and the gender pay gap both within and out of academia. We talked about the actual process of starting an independent magazine, why we need to be talking about equity rather than equality and much more.

Rebecca Whittington | Online Safety Editor | Reach

This week we speak to Rebecca Whittington, the UK's first ever Online Safety Editor. We discussed why this role needs to exist in the current journalistic climate, the challenge of protecting freedom of expression whilst making the internet safer for journalists and users, and the upcoming Westminster eForum on online safety later this month. This is a great entry point into understanding the change of legislation around online safety in publishing and why it is a conversation that needs to continue.
