The Missing Part of the Narrative: Hispanics in the U.S. Media Industry


In October 2020, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus requested the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) to conduct a study to help better understand the state of diversity in the media. In September 2021, the GAO report was released with the title “Workforce Diversity: Analysis of Federal Data Shows Hispanics Are Underrepresented in the Media Industry.”
Join us on February 3 to learn about the findings of this report that brings clarity to the perpetual absence of Latinos in major newsrooms, film production, and other media industries where their portrayals — or lack thereof — can seriously affect how their fellow Americans view them.
Our keynote speaker U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro, who has made the inclusion of Latinos in media a central issue and led the request to GAO, will present the report’s major findings and examine the underrepresentation of Latinos in news, film, television, and books.
Following our keynote speaker, a panel with main Latino media organizations will debate about the challenges and opportunities faced today: the National Association, the National Association of Latino Independent Producers, and the National Hispanic Media Coalition.
This event is organized by the new Bilingual Journalism M.A. and the Hispanic Service Institution Initiatives at the University of Arizona.
