Hello. We’re Media Bridge Partners.

You might be here and reading this because you want to bring change to your news organization. We do too!

We believe in equity and digital transformation.

This is why we’ve created Media Bridge Partners: A purpose-built consultancy specialized in helping newsrooms build a strong foundation toward a more diverse, equitable and inclusive future.

What we do

Media Bridge Partners works to improve and transform the internal culture of news organizations and arm teams with the awareness and skills to support people from historically marginalized backgrounds within their ranks. Our aim is to foster inclusive and just coverage of all communities, especially ones that have been historically underserved. Our suite of services include Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) consulting, training, coaching, and leadership development.

The DEIB space is a crowded one. What makes us different is that we represent a unique blend of experiences, with a common thread of leaning into innovation and effecting change within journalism. We are innovators, educators, and industry leaders. We represent decades of experience in local and national, legacy and digital-first news organizations, in both private and public media. Our focus is on entire organizations. Diversity and equity are not newsroom-only issues.

Our Team

Each of us are active members of organizations that include the NABJ, AAJA, ONA, and SRCONN/OpenNews, organizations that are doing the foundational work to create Vision 25. We are Knight Foundation, Google News Initiative, and Corporation for Public Broadcasting grantees.
