**Open Diversity – building news (by and about) that looks more like all of us!**

This aims to be an open discussion and to establish some collective goals for the field. The intent is to move beyond complaints from women and people of color directed at X media outlet, Y conference organizer, and Z grant funder.
What constitutes “diversity”? What does it mean to be more diverse? What does diversity look like? How does it feel? How are we going to achieve it? Last December Tracy Van Slyke and Josh Sterns wrote “10 Journalism Resolutions for 2010” (review here: http://tiny.cc/vuk0r ) Eight months into the year – what is the collective report card? Are we achieving progress? What can we collectively do to deepen progress and ensure real, and open, diversity?

Note: Several proposals potentially touch on diversity, but as none are explicit, hence this separate proposal.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
