You hear their voices, and trust them, and empower them to report on what they see as important, and elevate them to positions of power or prominence so there are people of colour higher up in the chain who can champion those stories and help with their framing.
But what do you think's lost with your departure?
Sunny Dhillon has quit The Globe and Mail — and he's not going quietly.
The reporter wrote a piece for the website Medium about his departure, titled Journalism While Brown and When to Walk Away. And then, for the next 24 hours or so, I had thought a lot about it and I had a long conversation with my wife and other people I trust. It's a hard position to get to as a journalist of colour, to get a job at a prominent publication, particularly in print, in this country.
Crawley believes they’ve developed enough intelligence about reader habits since Sophi has been in place to apply it to the newspaper itself.
“From Sophi data, consistently the most popular thing we do is opinion,” he said.
They can see whether a piece is attracting more social media attention, or if it is getting people to pay for a subscription.
host Carol Off about his departure and the challenges of being a person of colour in a Canadian newsroom. Sunny, in your piece you wrote for Medium, you say: "How many battles do you have in you? There is this constant struggle to try and assess which battles you take on and which ones you might win and which ones you're very likely to lose. You were reporting on the aftermath of municipal election results in British Columbia. I was assigned a story on the election of the new Vancouver City Council, which is almost entirely white. It was assigned to me after the bureau's morning meeting. You wrote in this article: "What I brought to the newsroom did not matter." Yes, that was the feeling that I had. have these experiences and these insights that we bring to the table, but we don't feel seen or heard, or understood. I think sometimes there's a tendency to talk about this issue as though, "Well, how are we going to fix it?Since I published the piece on Monday, I've heard from dozens of journalists of colour ... They've shared those same experiences of not feeling as though they're represented, and not feeling as though their voices are valued — and yes, some people have left jobs over it.Some people have talked about the feeling as though they're constantly failing other people of colour, because they don't see a way to get at the issues that they consider to be of importance.You say that this all crystallized for you last week. That's in a city with a population of Asian descent coming up on half, and certainly all the discussion in the newsroom ... And then very late in the day, I felt we were making a choice to downplay the angle of race. Essentially the bureau chief had told me I should focus more on the fact that eight of the 10 elected councillors were women, and less on the issue of race. We know that in a daily newsroom where you're just putting things out very, quickly, you had hours to do this story. I think, to me, it was clear what we were doing ... In terms of whether it was a communication problem or what have you, I don't know as much as I'd like, on exactly what went into that decision. It's very complicated." But I think it's actually very simple: you hire more people of colour.Well, in your piece it suggests it is more than just trying to downplay. We should point out that it wasn't your idea to do the story about lack of diversity in council. What are you hearing from other journalists of colour about your experience at the Globe?
