In partnership with The Washington Post, the Poynter Institute announced the 29 journalists of color selected for the 2022 Leadership Academy for Diversity in Media.

These leaders emerged from more than 150 applicants and, states a release, they represent some of America’s most innovative and influential newsrooms, including international organizations, Spanish-language outlets, public media, nonprofit news, local newspapers, digital newsrooms and startups.

“It’s an honor to provide a safe space and springboard to journalists of color from a wide range of organizations to be even more effective leaders,” said Doris Truong, director of training and diversity strategies at Poynter and co-lead of the diversity leadership academy. “Many of us know what it’s like to be the First and Only. This academy provides kinship and furthers our shared mission to broaden inclusion so journalism can evolve to be as inclusive as our audiences deserve.”

Poynter began the Leadership Academy for Diversity in Media at Poynter six years ago and partnered with The Post in 2019. In total, Poynter has connected and empowered nearly 200 journalists of color to be self-aware managers, visionary leaders and change agents through this program.

The journalists of color will convene at Poynter, Oct. 9-14, to expand their impact as media leaders and change agents. Those on the list include:

Kimberly Adams, Host and Senior Washington Correspondent, Marketplace

Charity Brown, Deputy Director of Newsroom Product, The Washington Post

Carmen Castro-Pagán, Team Lead, Bloomberg Industry Group, Arlington, VA

Euna Lee, Head, Acquired and Commissioning Programs, Voice of America, Washington, D.C.
