Summary
This journalism master's project includes a professional work component and a research component. The professional work component details the author's experiences working as an intern at United Press International in Washington D.C. as a reporter and participant researcher. Includes field notes and examples of work. In the research component the author "seeks more definitive information on the recruitment, retention, and institutional support of people of color who've chosen business journalism as a career." (p. 4) The research addresses the following questions: "First, what is the distribution of people of color within business journalism? Does more evidence support the assumption that people of color purposefully avoid business reporting as a career? Is the beat's structure and culture more restrictive than others? Do strong examples of institutional support for diversity initiatives exist? Do established business reporters run into stronger roadblocks as they attempt to influence coverage? Do professional-training deficits play a role? Is recruitment subpar? Do journalists of color feel they're needed more (and can succeed professionally) elsewhere?" (p. 21) Includes a literature review and interview transcripts with selected business reporters and editors
