“The empowerment of women is the most inclusive way to move forward as a community. Canada is also promoting media freedom and provides dialogues for journalists. Locally we have partnered with organisations in India and other places and conduct activities and provide opportunities for journalists to share their views and have discussions on these issues,” said Duncan, who had won the best influencer award at the Women in Diversity Awards in 2020.

Duncan remarked on how her career in Canada was flourishing until a friend one day claimed she was only receiving opportunities due to being black and a woman.

“I was sad, angry, for my capabilities were overlooked, and at some point, it makes you doubt your capabilities. So, this experience and many others in my career over 15 years, made me sensitive to inclusive, free media and equality for women in journalism.

“One thing that I ensured, when I was working with women, was to make sure that they were okay, be it addressing issues of race, sexual harassment at workplaces, gender pay gap, women not being offered top leadership positions in newsrooms,” said Duncan, who is also the executive director of the Media Girlfriends podcast company and network.

The award-winning journalist shared how her podcast Media Girlfriends is very close to her heart, as the central theme of it is the experiences of women in media, their careers and personal lives.
