We still need YOU to support us as we continue to celebrate our brave disruptors this holiday season: those who, in 2020, have had the courage to highlight the social divides the pandemic has exposed and push for better. 

Last week, we celebrated Sandra Bashengazi from the Democratic Republic of Congo. This week, we are celebrating the brave Karyn Pugliese aka Pabàmàdiz, Algonquin, Pikwàkanagàn First Nation.

Karyn is best known for her work as a Parliament Hill reporter and as the Executive Director of News and Current Affairs at APTN, where she ran the news department for seven years. She joined Ryerson’s faculty in the Spring of 2020 while completing a Nieman Fellowship at Harvard University.

As part of the report Half the Story is Never Enough recently published by JHR and UNESCO, Karyn authored the paper Silent no more: what Indigenous women journalists in Canada face, and what can be done to help them, which draws insights from in-depth interviews with 15 female Indigenous journalists working in media in Canada. 

In this paper, she lays out a concrete action plan outlining strategies to mitigate the threats female Indigenous journalists face every day. This is why the work she is doing is so important. 

With YOUR support you can help Karyn support and protect Indigenous women in media. 

YOU can help us make a difference TODAY!
