ASNE partners with UVA to invigorate diversity survey
In case you missed it, ASNE announced Feb. 27 its new partnership with the University of Virginia on expanding this year's diversity survey to better understand newsroom diversity efforts and challenges. The revamp of the survey will bring a deeper data-driven focus to measure the status of diversity in staffing in U.S. print and online publications. Meredith Clark, a professor at the university's Department of Media Studies, and her research team are leading the project, with the help of a $300,000 grant from the Democracy Fund. The Google News Lab and Knight Foundation are also contributing to the project. Click here to read the entire announcement.
