Maynard Institute Celebrates Three Decades of Training Minority Journalists

Dori Maynard, president and CEO of the Robert C. Maynard Institute for Journalism Education, will receive the Asian American Journalists Association’s Leadership in Diversity Award, which will be presented to her at the UNITY: Journalists of Color convention July 23-27 in Chicago. The institute, which has trained and placed more minority journalists than any other single institution in the country, will also be celebrating its 30th anniversary with a breakfast at the convention.

“As president and chief executive officer of the Robert C. Maynard Institute for Journalism Education, she heads an organization her father and other journalists started, that teaches journalists to recognize the ‘fault lines’ of race, class, gender, generation and geography in newsgathering and coverage,” the AAJA stated.
