Managing Newsroom Diversity
The Managing Newsroom Diversity project aims to identify and study cases of innovative approaches to diversity management, launched by newsrooms and media organizations with the objective of increasing newsrooms’ discursive diversity, including in talent management and programming.
European societies are changing at a rapid speed, but progress in diversifying European newsrooms is slow. Innovation is thus needed in diversity and talent management and practical knowledge on the implementation of innovative approaches to diversity management in newsrooms will contribute to journalism remaining a cornerstone of healthy democracies and open societies.
Project is funded by Norway Grants – Basic Research Programme POLS schema, operated by the Polish National Science Centre (NCN) and is conducted at the Faculty of Journalism, Information and Book Studies, University of Warsaw in Poland.
Project is approved by the University of Warsaw Rector’s Committee for the Ethics of Research Involving Human Participants. Detailed information about data processing can be found here (in English) and here (in Polish).
Project is led by a diverse team of researchers – Dr. Greta Gober (PI), Dr. Michał Głowacki, Dr. Anna Jupowicz-Ginalska (2022-23) and Ms. Małgorzata Druciarek (2021-22). While the PI’s academic interests center on voice, visibility and unequal power relations, with regards to gender and other social and cultural categories operating in media organizations and industries, Dr. Głowacki brings to the project extensive knowledge of media policy, management and innovation culture and Ms. Druciarek knowledge of gender equality policy and diversity management. Dr. Anna Jupowicz-Ginalska brings a theoretical and practical approach to media management, media polarization, as well as help with project management.
