About this Event

Pamela Newkirk presents her new book, Diversity, Inc.: The Failed Promise of a Billion-Dollar Business (2019), a landmark survey of recent efforts to bring racial equality to America’s major corporations and institutions. Newkirk shines a bright light on the diversity industry, asking tough questions about why progress has been so slow, and highlighting a small number of success stories that point the way to meaningful advances. A former reporter for Albany’s Knickerbocker News (1984-87), Newkirk shared a 1992 Pulitzer Prize for Newsday’s coverage of a fatal subway crash. She serves as Professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies in NYU’s journalism program. Her previous books include Within the Veil: Black Journalists, White Media (2000), winner of the National Press Club Award for media criticism, and Spectacle: The Astonishing Life of Ota Benga (2015), named a Best Book of the Year by NPR, the Boston Globe, the San Francisco Chronicle, and The Root.

Sponsored by the University at Albany’s Alumni Association, School of Business, and the NYS Writers Institute.
