Coalition Milestones

Research

Coalition members advise, support and amplify published global research studies that validate the need for faith and media to work together more collaboratively and identify key opportunities for improvement.  The Radiant Foundation’s Faith and Media Initiative (FAMI) will publish two additional comprehensive research studies this year with Coalition support: The HarrisX Faith & Entertainment Global Study and The Gallup Mental Health & Spirituality Study.

Education

Coalition members are co-designing future workshops and training programs that can be available to writers around the world. Additionally, they have helped amplify and assist on training workshops for over 1,000 journalists, faith leaders, and entertainment writers.

Culture Change

Through earned media, op-eds and panel discussions, we’re helping to spark a global conversation about the roles that faith and media play in society for millions of people around the world.

Thought Leadership

Our Coalition Task Forces will be authoring and releasing three thought-provoking reports in 2024, including a deeper look at the ways faith can co-exist within the business of media across HR initiatives and DEI efforts, and best practices representing faith in media.
