The Eagle’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion group aims to fully represent the AU community through our staff, including our leadership and coverage. We hope to strengthen trust from marginalized communities. Part of strengthening trust includes being more transparent about our coverage and what steps we are taking to improve our reporting. In order to do the best coverage possible, we know that it’s essential for our staff to be representative of the AU community.
We hope to collaborate with and uplift other news organizations that marginalized communities trust and rely on. We recognize that The Eagle has made mistakes in the past by covering unfairly or failing to cover underrepresented communities, and part of the DEI group’s goal is to make structural changes to continually do better.
We welcome and encourage feedback from the AU community on how we can make our staff and coverage more representative of the AU community. Our readers can reach out to the Editor-in-Chief at email@example.com to share their suggestions.
