 Women in Media conference makes generous donation to MASH

The team behind the Women in Media Conference (WIM) has made a substantial donation to MASH following a hugely successful 2019 event.

The conference was established four years ago by a small group of student journalists from the University of Manchester and has supported MASH as its official charity partner since its creation, this year donating an incredible £2,176.

MASH (Manchester Action on Street Health) is a small Manchester charity which works with female sex workers to empower them and promote health, wellbeing and personal safety.

The annual WIM conference, held at the People’s History Museum, aims to inspire women to pursue a career in the media by celebrating and learning from successful women in journalism, radio, PR and more.

Janelle Hardacre, fundraising and marketing officer at MASH, said: “We are hugely grateful for the loyal support of the Women in Media conference and this donation amount could enable us to keep our mobile drop-in vehicle stocked and on the road for ten weeks so we can reach women who may have nowhere else to turn to. It really makes a huge difference to a small but vital charity like MASH.

“This year’s conference was a brilliant event which inspired and empowered women to pursue their goals, chiming very closely with our aims at MASH to support and empower women.”

Speakers at this year’s event included Rachel Burden from BBC Radio 5 Live, Danielle Robinson from The Daily Telegraph, Bafta nominated TV producer, Caroline Leddy and former Newsround presenter, Nelufar Hedayat.

Ethan Davies, Editor-in-Chief of The Mancunion, said: "WIM is an incredible movement from students at the University of Manchester, and we're immensely proud of the work we've done this year to not only support MASH but also empower female voices within the industry and help the next generation of journalists into the media world. Of course, we are a long way from achieving gender equality in journalism but with movements like WIM, change is coming - and it's coming from an organic, inclusive, and diverse place. 

"MASH also is a brilliant organisation that does so much for so many women - we've been delighted to partner with them in 2019, and we'll be delighted to keep working with them into the next decade".

The 2020 event will be chaired by The Mancunion’s incoming editor Anja Samy.
