Geneva Overholser on The Quest to Diversify Media and More...
January 9, 2014
The Front Door Project is a 14-month series of online initiatives that examines the state of diversity and the media, provide recommendations to help the industry move forward, and nurture the careers of new journalists. This body of work will provide insights into younger audiences and audiences of color as well as steps to improve coverage and business practices across the fault lines of race, class, gender, generation and geography.

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.
