A renewed commitment to ethnic diversity is needed for newsrooms in the U.S., an award-winning journalist and publisher/CEO of the Navajo Times plans to say during a public lecture at 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 22, at Architecture Building, Room 103.
Tom Arviso Jr.’s talk, “The Story Tellers of Today and Tomorrow: A
Discussion About the Need for More Journalists of Color in Newsrooms Across the USA,” is for the School of Journalism’s faculty, students, and staff, local journalists, and members of the university, local, and tribal communities.
Arviso, a leader with journalism diversity organizations like the Native American Journalists Association (NAJA) and UNITY Journalists, believes that diversity needs to remain an emphasis in newsrooms and journalism education.
This event is sponsored by the UA student chapter of NAJA. Those with questions may contact NAJA faculty adviser and School of Journalism’s diversity initiative coordinator, Kevin R. Kemper, at
