The Robert C. Maynard Institute for Journalism Education is now accepting applications for its new Equity & Inclusion Transformation program, funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
The Newsroom Transformation Program leverages an embedded coaching model to help news organizations better inform underserved communities and establish workplace cultures of belonging. Our goal is to help newsrooms become more equitable and inclusive in their reporting, workplace, and in the communities they serve.
This application will ask a range of questions about your new organization's size and readership, as well as your staff's experience and/or interest in diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) work. We recommend your organization select one staff member as the project lead and the main point of contact for this initiative application. Only one application per newsroom should be submitted by the project lead.
