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.

The Whole Story: Diversity Tips and Tools
Diversity Style Guides Roundup

When is your source American Indian or when is he Native American?

Not sure of the background of the pink triangle symbol or what a reference to “Stonewall” is all about?

Should you describe someone as a “little person,” a “dwarf,” or “of short stature”?

Check out the latest resources for journalists who want to do a better job covering the distinct communities that make up the U.S. population.
For a short, new style guide and an excellent resource section on “Covering Indian Country,” go to Newswatch, a project of the Center on the Integration and Improvement of Journalism at San Francisco State University.

Check out the updated version of a style guide supplement on gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender terminology by the National Lesbian and Gay Journalism Association.

Look for the new primer on covering disability from the National Center on Disability and Journalism's Style Guide. The guide, under development but already quite useful, offers helpful tips on definitions and terms that come up when covering people with disabilities.


Other Style Guides

For a compilation of style guides with the help of the Asian American Journalists Association, the National Association of Black Journalists, the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association, the Native American Journalists Association, the National Center on Disability and Journalism, the South Asian Journalists Association, and "100 Questions and Answers About Arabs: A Journalist's Guide" by the Detroit Free Press: http://www.ciij.org/newswatch?id=162
