Racial and ethnic diversity across the nonprofit news sector increased between 2020 and 2022, according to research from the Institute for Nonprofit News (INN). The INN Index 2023: Report on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Nonprofit News Sector, released today, indicates that the racial and ethnic makeup of staff at nonprofit news organizations — while varying from outlet to outlet — largely reflects the U.S. population and is more diverse than the news industry overall. Greater gains in racial and ethnic diversity have been made at the staff level than at the leadership level. Looking at nonprofit news staff through a gender lens, INN saw that women continue to hold about half of positions at nonprofit newsrooms and an even greater percentage of management and executive roles. All news organizations surveyed are members of the INN Network, which now has more than 425 members across North America.
