Black Canada Talking™ is a live online event that provides Black Canadians opportunity to give their takes and POVs on stories that are of importance to them.
On the December 13, 2020 edition of Black Canada Talking™ the guests were Nadia Stewart (Executive Director) and Brian Daly (Atlantic Director) of the Website“>Canadian Association Of Black Journalists (CABJ).
Storytelling has taken Nadia Stewart from coast to coast. These days, you’ll find her at Global BC, where she works as a videojournalist. She got her start at Rogers TV as a reporter, anchor and talk show host. In 2010, Nadia joined the CBC, working as a multi-platform reporter and anchor in St. John’s, Calgary and Edmonton. She also spent six years as an editor and freelance writer for Planet Africa Magazine, a Toronto-based quarterly publication that celebrates the achievements of the black community across the diaspora. Nadia is also proud to be among the first graduates of the University of Guelph-Humber (2006). Off-camera, Nadia helped to relaunch the Canadian Association of Black Journalists (CABJ). She also volunteers as a mentor in her community.
During our conversation, Ms. Stewart and Mr. Daly talked about:
– Some of their backgrounds and getting involved with CABJ
Founded in 1996, the Canadian Association of Black Journalists’ (CABJ) mission is to increase representation through education and inspiration. We believe Black journalists must work together in an effort to diversify newsrooms, to increase the number of Black media professionals in management positions in Canada and to educate and inspire a new generation of young Black journalists.
As the CABJ works towards extending its reach across Canada, they are focused on:
– Advocating for diversity in Canadian media
– Re-establishing and increasing CABJ’s membership base in regions across Canada
– Raising up a new generation of Black journalists and content creators
– Offering hands-on workshops and other diverse professional development opportunities to Black journalists and content creators
