The program supports the next generation of storytellers, managers/leaders and entrepreneurs of diverse backgrounds by providing relevant training courses, resources and mentorship by distinguished media professionals and experts of varying backgrounds.
We have trained two 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.
