The new year is a time of reflection and a time for setting goals. We looked to our three newest CCNMA board members for their goals on making newsrooms reflect the people they cover.
My goals for CCNMA are to promote diversity in journalism by working as a “connector” between job-seekers and news organizations.
—Luis Gomez, Business editor at the Investigative News Network
I am eager to lead efforts in continuing to provide first-class quality news and information that serve and represent my community. I aim to tell compelling stories across digital platforms while adding value to readers. And I hope to inspire, in some capacity, the next generation of Latino reporters.
—Yvonne Villarreal, Reporter at the Los Angeles Times
My goal is to provide scholarships to outstanding Hispanic students across the country and help them realize their professional aspirations in Journalism.
—Ignacio Garcia, Coordinating producer at ESPN International and ESPN Deportes
