Racial Equity and Inclusion in Nonprofit News is an INN resource that helps members advance racial diversity, equity and inclusion in their organizations and their journalism.
REINN allows nonprofit news leaders to join an ongoing process of building racial equity into their organizational practices. Resources are designed to be accessible, particularly to small and mid-size news operations, in any stage of their DEI work. This is an evolving program based on member needs and participant feedback – please check this space regularly for new opportunities.
The Institute for Nonprofit News collaborates with outstanding schools and programs across the country to facilitate more than 70 paid internship and fellowship positions with member organizations each year. Many of our partnerships focus on building pathways into nonprofit news for emerging journalists of color. Learn more here.
