Advancing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Journalism: What Funders Can Do

Written by Michelle Polyak, Katie Donnelly 11 October 2019

The failure of newsrooms to fully reflect their communities, to build a culture of inclusion that supports and retains diverse staff, and to foster equitable models of reporting that reflect the truth of people’s lived experiences is undermining trust in media and risking the sustainability of the press...Funders must therefore urgently refocus their efforts on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) as the right thing to do, both morally and strategically" (Polyak and Donnelly, 2019).
