"how can we do better?"
In June of 2020, Pulama Kaufman, Kaylee Golding and Sara Hebil-Motie launched the #RadioSilence movement. Inspired by the BLM protests sweeping across the globe, the initial #RadioSilence research shined a light on the shocking lack of racial diversity in the UK radio industry and asked, "How can we do better?"
Since then, Radio Silence has transformed into a non-profit company thats aims are rooted in elevating the voices of all underrepresented groups within the UK audio, radio and broadcasting industry through research, community outreach and our podcast platform.
Our latest research in collaboration with Women in CTRL entitled, "The Experience of Women in Radio," aims to holistically outline the barriers that women in the industry face from entry level roles to positions of power.
