Reflect America Fellowship - NPR / Washington, D.C.
This fellowship builds on five years of work to increase the diversity of NPR's sources. In 2013, the network began tracking the race/ethnicity, gender and geographic location of its news sources on its two largest shows, Morning Edition and All Things Considered. NPR found that its sources were overwhelmingly white, male and located on the east and west coasts. A 2016 study of digital sources found similar challenges. This fellowship will boost newsroom efforts to bring more voices into our journalism.

The fellowship is a series of three- to four-month rotations spent with various shows and coverage teams at NPR's headquarters in Washington, D.C. The Fellow will be embedded with producers, reporters, editors and other staff, working to find, vet and book a diversity of experts and everyday people for stories and interviews on the radio, online and in podcasts. The Fellow will also support the efforts of NPR and Member stations to build a public media workforce that reflects America.
