45 years of diversity, equity and belonging in Journalism

“Newsrooms have a responsibility to cure the legacy of racism.” Robert C. Maynard, 1978

For more than 45 years, the Maynard Institute has fought to push back against the systemic lack of diversity in the news industry through training, collaborations and convenings. We are creating better representation in America’s newsrooms through our Maynard 200 fellowship program, which gives media professionals of color the tools to become skilled storytellers, empowered executives and inspired entrepreneurs.

Join the fight!
