Journeys of Belonging: A Conversation on Diversity in the Media

Thursday, December 6 at 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.

National Press Club

 529 14th Street NW, 13th floor

Washington, DC

RSVP to Monica Ayala-Talavera monica@unaoc.org

In a world where newsgathering and news consumption have changed radically, one would assume that the modern media landscape reflects greater diversity in both the stories covered and the people who cover them. But is that really the case?

Bringing together senior journalists and participants in the Journeys of Belonging video series, this panel discussion will explore how well today’s media reflect cultural diversity. What new editorial initiatives strive to reflect diversity in the news? Can journalists improve understanding of diverse cultures? And if they can, is it their place to do so?

Join us for a lively and engaging discussion with journalism professionals and participants from our Journeys of Belonging video series:

Joe Klein (moderator), political columnist & editor at large, Time

Dori J. Maynard, president, Maynard Institute for Journalism Education

Alicia Stewart, CNN.com Identity editor

Aziz Abu Sarah, executive director, Center for World Religions, Diplomacy and Conflict Resolution, George Mason University

Elizabeth Birch, president of Birch & Company, former executive director of the Human Rights Campaign
