The 2018 ASNE Newsroom Employment Diversity Survey went into the field last week. We ask you to please participate and help us track the state of diversity in staffing in U.S. newsrooms and achieve our longtime goal of having the percentage of minorities working in newsrooms nationwide equal to that of minorities in the nation's population by 2025. We believe such parity is critical to providing fair and accurate coverage of communities and the country.
Supported by the Democracy Fund, the Google News Lab, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Robert C. Maynard Institute for Journalism Education, the 2018 diversity survey is led by Meredith Clark, assistant professor of the University of Virginia's Department of Media Studies, and her research team.
