Hispanics underrepresented in media industry, states GAO report

by | Oct 5, 2022

Hispanic workers are underrepresented in the media industry, according to a report released by Congressman Joaquin Castro (D-20-TX), conducted by the General Accounting Office (GAO), states MediaPost.

Hispanics made up 12% of the media workforce in 2019, up from 11% in 2010,, but down slightly from a higher percentage in 2018.

In contrast, Hispanics constituted 18% of the employees in non-media industries, up from 15% in 2010.

“When I was a kid growing up in the Mexican-American neighborhoods of San Antonio, the faces and places I saw in movies and in the news rarely matched the world around me,” Castro states. “Today, Latino representation in American media isn’t much better than it was back then.”

Castro adds that “Latinos make up nearly 20 percent of the country and our contributions are critical to America’s success, but our stories remain almost entirely missing from the American narrative.”
