Source Diversity Tracking: A workshop

Monday, May 9, 2022

As science writers, we’re often pressed for time. So we reach out to the sources who seem to be easiest to find. But when we exclude the voices of people who are underrepresented in science, we overlook important viewpoints that make our stories richer, more complex, and ultimately more accurate. In this two-part workshop, we’ll address why source diversity matters, what metrics to track, how to capture the data, who should capture the data, and how tracking can be used to improve our work.
