The Maynard 200 experience has really changed the way that I look at this work, and has empowered me to be more of a leader in the world of news. Hélène Biandudi Hofer, Maynard 200, Class of 2019; Manager, Solutions Journalism Network; Founder, HBH Enterprises LLC

The program supports the next generation of storytellers, leaders, frontline editors and entrepreneurs of diverse backgrounds by providing relevant training courses, resources and mentorship by distinguished media professionals and experts.

We have trained three outstanding cohorts so far since 2018, who are now being promoted in both mainstream and ethnic media newsrooms such as the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Mother Jones, theGrio, the Associated Press, the Washington Informer, Mundo Hispanico, Nieman Journalism Lab, among many others, or earning grants for entrepreneurial media ventures.

They represent African-American, Latino/Latinx, Chinese, Native American, Filipino, South Asian, Middle Eastern and the West and East Coasts, Pacific Northwest, South and Midwest regions in the United States.

The continuation of this cornerstone program will be critical to advancing the Maynard Institute’s efforts to expand the diversity pipeline in American media and dismantle structural racism in its newsrooms. These leaders will have the opportunity to change the management culture including hiring practices in institutional and entrepreneurial news organizations.

Maynard Institute programs are open to all. We are committed to addressing the under-representation of people of color and other historically disadvantaged groups in media-related professions, and so we make special efforts to recruit individuals from these groups for our programs.
