ORGANIZATION SPOTLIGHT: IDA B. WELLS SOCIETY FOR INVESTIGATIVE REPORTING
The Ida B. Wells Society for Investigative Reporting aims to increase the ranks, retention and profile of reporters/editors of color in investigative reporting.  Ida B. Wells was the pioneering African-American activist and investigative reporter who, during the Jim Crow era, led the nation’s first campaign against lynching. Born into slavery and orphaned at age 16, Wells not only dispelled stereotypes regarding rape and lasciviousness that led to black men and women being lynched, but revealed that often these victims’ only “crimes” were threatening white supremacy through acts of resistance or achievement. She continued her reporting in the face of death threats.

Nearly 85 years after Wells’s death, women and people of color still struggle for acceptance, credibility and opportunity as investigative reporters.  Studies have shown that diverse editorial staffs are essential for reporting that is relatable, relevant, and actionable for all audiences. But people of color constitute less than 13 percent of all newsroom jobs, according to an annual survey by the American Society of Newsroom Editors, and 10 percent of supervisors; their presence is even smaller on investigative teams. Women represent 37 percent of newsroom jobs and 35 percent of supervisors.  Click here to learn more about this organization.
