One of the goals for the Vision25: Building Racial Equity in Newsrooms collaboration is to establish ‘institutions of belonging.’ The term describes actively anti-racist news organizations where journalists of color have a sense of agency and belonging in the newsroom. We believe that institutions of belonging are part of the solution to creating a diverse, equitable and trustworthy press.
So how can your news organization become an institution of belonging?
In the second episode of Belonging in the News, Martin G. Reynolds, event moderator and co-executive director of the Maynard Institute will discuss the answers with award-winning executive producer of Latino USA and creator of Futuro Media Group, Maria Hinojosa. They’ll cover her first experiences as the only Latina in the NPR newsroom and how that impacted her efforts pioneering institutions of belonging.
The Online News Association, OpenNews and the Maynard Institute have come together to create Vision25: Building Racial Equity in Newsrooms, a catalyst in a social change movement that seeks to build journalistic institutions where newsrooms are actively anti-racist and collaborative, and journalists of color feel like they truly belong.
