This week, gal-dem’s Head of Editorial Charlie Brinkhurst-Cuff talks about the publication’s evolution into a fully-fledged and funded publishing business, why they decided to have a print magazine alongside the digital site, and the lessons she will and won’t be applying from her time working with other publishers. She also explains why it’s so important to have a truly supportive internship scheme, and how publishers need to prepare themselves to properly support diversity in the workplace before bringing people in.

The team discuss Vox Media’s acquisition of New York Magazine, how the BBC has found itself in the middle of a racism row with Naga Munchetty, and the launch of Platinum magazine from DC Thomson.
