Diversity

On both chapter and national levels, SPJ provides an open forum for the discussion of diversity issues in journalism. The Diversity Committee's purpose is to promote a broader voice in newsrooms across the country and expand the depth and quality of news reports through better sourcing. Its ongoing project is the compilation of experts — primarily women, gays and lesbians, people of color and people with disabilities — through the Society's Diversity Source Book. The Society's relevance to its member is based on inclusiveness.

Guidelines for Countering Racial, Ethnic and Religious Profiling

The Society of Professional Journalists passed a resolution urging members and fellow journalists to take steps against racial profiling in their coverage of the war on terrorism and to redouble their commitment to use language that is informative and not inflammatory, portray other cultures and religions fairly and seek truth through a variety of voices and perspectives.
