Event description

Description

On screen, in words and images, behind the cameras, in newsrooms or executive boardrooms, media organizations and the content they produce don’t yet reflect the society we are: diverse in culture, race, gender, sexuality, abilities and more. As communicators but also media consumers, what strategies can we use to recognize our own biases, the biases of our institutions and industry conventions, understand difference and advance equity?

Andrea Otanez, associate director of the UW Center for Communication, Difference and Equity, joins us to lead an informal discussion about intentional inclusion and diversity in media.

Andrea is an educator and journalist who has written, edited and developed online and print packages in a variety of beats. In 2017, she was named Journalism Educator of the Year by the Society for Professional Journalists, Western Washington Professional Chapter. As part of her work at the University of Washington, she developed a class called Journalism in a Diverse Society, and teaches about race, power and media. She has also developed curriculum on Latino representation in media.
