Diversity Works: Fairness & Accuracy In Newsrooms

Very grateful to have my friends and colleagues join me at Kingsborough Community College to discuss the importance of newsroom diversity.

Journalists are entrusted with providing news and information which are in the public’s best interest. Their experience, background, gender and a host of other factors have a direct impact on how content is gathered, packaged and delivered.

At a time when media is being attacked or bias reporting, a group of seasoned newsroom leaders shared insights on how diversity ensures that storytelling is fair and accurate.
