Diversity Committee Roster
On both chapter and national levels, SPJ provides an open forum for the discussion of diversity issues in journalism. This 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.
