|"It matters that those who lead the newsroom understand every facet of the community they cover. It is in seeing ourselves whole that we can begin to see ways of working out our differences, of understanding our similarities."
Robert C. Maynard, 1978
Are You Up for the Challenge?
Welcome to the online interactive game that challenges players to diversify a typical newsroom, while testing their basic knowledge of cultures.
You've just been appointed editor of a mid-size newspaper, and the publisher has asked you to move aggressively to diversify newsroom staffing and the paper's content. You must set policy and make strategic decisions that will bring the racial makeup of your newsroom into parity with the surrounding community within four years.
Work We <3 | FDP
Instead of spending all our time calling out journalism that doesn't work, we want to find work we like. We'd like to encourage our readers to submit links to content that is moving or challenging and that goes beyond the standard narrative either at the level of form or content. In other words, we want to see journalism that works.
We're particularly interested in work at the nexus of the following categories:
- Please include a comment explaining why the content you're sharing works.
- Comments can be as short or long as desired.
