Canadian Association of Journalists launches its fourth annual Newsroom Diversity Survey

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 26 Feb 2024, 11:37 pm

Toronto/IBNS: The Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ) has launched its fourth consecutive year's Newsroom Diversity Survey.

“The 2023 diversity survey set a high-bar as it collected the most comprehensive sample of newsroom demographic data ever compiled in Canadian media history. Our challenge for 2024 is ambitious: to gather more and more data to better understand the progress being made by industry to ensure that newsrooms reflect the diversity, equity, and inclusiveness of the communities they serve,” Brent Jolly, CAJ president said.

6,035 journalists working in 273 newsrooms were included in last year’s survey to gather data.

To strengthen the administration of the survey including hiring a part-time diversity survey officer who works to increase the number of newsrooms participating, the Canadian Race Relations Foundation has generously provided three years of funding.

The deadline for newsrooms to complete the 2024 survey is May 15.

Canada’s largest national professional organization for journalists from all media, CAJ with its primary roles to provide high-quality professional development for its members and public-interest advocacy, represents members across the country.
