In the GWH Summer Series, ACFID’s Bridi Rice takes you inside the Canberra foreign policy community to ask one key question: what does increased poverty mean for Australian international affairs?
Welcome to Episode 02 of Good Will Hunters’ Summer Series, brought to you by Good Will Media. Today, in the second of this six-part series, our host Bridi Rice chats to Lisa Cornish about how the media shapes our perceptions of aid and development.
Lisa is a freelance data journalist based in Canberra, Australia. Lisa formerly worked with News Corp Australia as a data journalist for the national network and was published throughout Australia in major metropolitan and regional newspapers, including the Daily Telegraph in Melbourne, Herald Sun in Melbourne, Courier-Mail in Brisbane and online through news.com.au. Lisa has recently been awarded the 2014 Journalist of the Year by the New South Wales Institute of Surveyors.
Lisa offers a transparent and candid insight on all things politics and aid, and calls on the Government to step up on data transparency and in its communication of the aid program.
