Diversity Committee
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.

Rainbow Diversity Sourcebook
Submit Source

Searching the Sourcebook
To search, check one or more of the topic boxes, then scroll down to the bottom and click “search.”

You can limit your original search by state, “minority voice” or other choices — but the more you limit the search, the fewer results you will get.

If you know the name or organization of the source you are seeking, fill in any of the “personal information” blanks.

See the Diversity Toolbox for essays on how to make your work more inclusive and for comprehensive links to other resources.
