We need you to participate in the 2019 Newsroom Employment Diversity Survey, now in the field!
The American Society of News Editors calls on news organizations across the media spectrum to participate in this year's diversity survey, which incorporates revised design and data collection methodologies to better establish a quantitative view of the diversity status in America's newsrooms. The survey went into the field last Thursday, April 11.
The purpose of the Newsroom Employment Diversity Survey, launched in 1978, is to document employment trends in U.S. print and online publications and help newsrooms reflect the growing diversity of their audiences. The survey measures progress toward ASNE's goal of having the percentage of minorities working in newsrooms nationwide equal to that of minorities in the nation's population by 2025.
Please take the time to complete the survey. Organizations that have not yet received a link to the survey should reach out to ASNE at firstname.lastname@example.org .
