WHY WE INVESTED
Race, class, gender, generation, geography, and communities are all aspects that of media coverage that journalists should consider. Media and news outlet coverage play an influential role in how we shape perceptions of one another and our communities. While the field of journalism acknowledges the lack of coverage for communities of color and the distorted images that are used to represent those communities, there continues to be a void in how to solve the problem. The Maynard Institute seeks to help the nation’s news media accurately, credibly, and fairly cover all segments of communities.
With the help of our grant, The Maynard Institute will continue there strategic plan centered to help news media obtain a diverse staff and providing the public with accurate and nuanced coverage of minority communities.
