Emerging Voices program

Making career pathways more accessible


The Emerging Voices work experience program aligns with Attitude Foundation’s value of providing platforms for people with disability to write and produce media content. This program complements Attitude Foundation’s extensive media work by creating a more accessible opportunity for people with disability to gain further training and experience in their chosen area of media. Each program is run in partnership with a media organisation. Along with our partners, Attitude Foundation aims to deliver programs that allow participants to explore and test their interest in a media career, gain real-life experience, and have a role in producing a TV show, radio show or podcast.
