The Independent is delighted to announce that Nadine White, Race Correspondent, has been shortlisted for the Black Talent Awards 2022. The prestigious awards highlight and champion Black talent across a range of industries and sectors, showcasing role models and emerging talent in their fields.
Nadine joined The Independent in March 2021 as its Race Correspondent and became the first dedicated race correspondent in UK journalism. Since joining the publication, she has been at the forefront of race issues in the country and has led investigations into key issues of the day like the Child Q scandal and covered the fallout from the recent Royal Tour of the Caribbean.
She is one of three finalists in the Marketing, Media, and Creative category and is also the only journalist to be a finalist across the whole awards, highlighting the cutting-edge role she continues to play in the industry, and her role in driving forward The Independent’s mission of ‘Making Change Happen’.
Nadine has already been widely recognised for her work, including winning the inaugural Paulette Wilson Windrush Award, from the Windrush Caribbean Film Festival in 2020 and appearing on the 2021 Forbes ’30 Under 30’ Media and Marketing list.
Commenting on the news, Nadine said “These prizes recognise Black people across various industries who have ‘thrived against the odds’; my back story is not that well known but I’m incredibly proud to have overcome tragedies and tribulations along my journey. I hope, as ever, to continue to inspire others in all that I do.”
Winners will be announced on 29th September.
