    Covering the Story of Race

    This year has been like no other. From the global coronavirus pandemic to the Black Lives Matter movement to protests following the killing of George Floyd, the news media has played a critical role in shaping how we understand these stories. However, these crises have also exposed challenges in newsrooms themselves, including a lack of racial diversity in newsrooms and inclusive editorial assignments that could help tell these stories more effectively. The media is being challenged to cover issues of diversity, equity and inclusion in society while reflecting on whether there is enough diversity in broadcast news itself, and if the right people are telling the right stories.

    Join SAG-AFTRA President's Task Force on Education, Outreach & Engagement for their latest livestream in which they will discuss some real-life examples of media coverage; unpack issues around the need for diverse voices when reporting on crucial issues; examine how stories are assigned, shaped and covered in the newsroom; and discuss best practices of telling stories better.

    This event is open to the public. Click here to RSVP. You will be emailed a link to view the livestream as a confirmation of your RSVP.
