Diversity means accuracy

“I always thought that including everyone in news coverage meant that it was accurate, that diversity is an important element of accuracy,” said Dawn Garcia, managing director of the Knight Fellowships. “As a reporter, I felt it was important to include people of all walks of life, color and backgrounds so you’re really telling the whole story.”

CCNMA is proud to recognize Garcia with the Career Achievement Award for her commitment to diversity. Read more about her work on the John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships website.
