Diversity Toolkit for Newsrooms

Best practices for newsrooms to address dissatisfaction, earn trust and improve coverage for underserved communities.

Introducing a center of excellence highlighting inherently scalable best practices for newsrooms, helping to repair and rebuild relationships with communities of color. Key areas include public safety, digital advisory groups, mobile newsrooms and listening events. As we eye our 2025 diversity North Star goal, adopting these best practices will better connect our newsrooms with communities of color, repair relationships and ultimately will include more content and sources from underrepresented communities. This effort also highlights the Content Diversity Dashboard.
