NYT, WaPo launch new diversity efforts after staff protests

Published Thu Jun 18 2020 20:53:52 GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)
The New York Times and Washington Post both outlined new measures on Thursday aimed at improving diversity in their coverage and newsrooms. It’s the latest action taken by media organizations to address employees protesting racial inequities in hiring as well as in coverage _ how stories are framed, and which stories are told. High-ranking editors have left at several media organizations, with some outlining plans for improvement in how race is addressed. The Post said it would add new positions to cover race, among other initiatives, while the Times plans to develop strategies to improve diversity and evolve coverage.
