Diversity: don’t talk about it, be about it

“If organizations don’t start taking diversity of race, gender, background, and thought in newsrooms seriously, our industry once again will further alienate entire populations of people that aren’t white. And this time, the damage will be worse than ever,” writes Aaron Edwards. To find good journalists of diverse backgrounds, tap into the resources from organizations like NABJ, NAHJ, AAJA, and NLGJA, writes Edwards. “Get editors to start creating pipelines for talent through workshops and programs geared to underrepresented groups.”
