WASHINGTON, Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today's media landscape looks unlike anything before -- but does it look more diverse? Join the discussion:
Journeys of Belonging: A Conversation on Diversity in the Media
In a world where news gathering 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:
