Did you know that the percentage of minorities in today’s newsrooms are at a mere 12%? Lacking diversity, different points of view, and cultures, NABJ/NAHJ was put into place to combat these low statistics. NABJ stands for National Association of Black Journalists, while NAHJ stands for National Association of Hispanic Journalists. Every year these organizations host a massive conference and career fair to increase the opportunity for minority journalists. MSNBC, CBS, Time Inc., Hearst, NPR, ESPN, and many more are in attendance every year to dole out jobs and internships for qualified candidates.
