UNITY: Journalists for Diversity is seeking eight broadcast journalists to help select winners for the RTDNA/Diversity Award to honor outstanding achievements in the coverage of diversity. The award is part of the covenant the association has adopted to achieve diversity in the newsroom through developing news content and editorial staffs that reflect the changing face of communities. The purpose of the award is to encourage and showcase journalistic excellence in covering issues of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity. It is presented annually to news organizations that show an ongoing commitment to covering the diversities of the communities they serve.
Anyone interested in serving as a judge should contact Walt Swanston at UNITY, email@example.com by Wednesday, February 12.
