Open primarily to ASNE member organizations, each Institute will provide leadership and management training to about 15 mid-level editors and news directors from news organizations around the country.

 

The Minority Leadership Institute is a program that ASNE started in 2012 with the goal of training minority journalists to become leaders in their organizations and in the industry. ASNE has trained about 70 news leaders since its inception.

 

"We believe this Institute represents an opportunity to identify, train and cultivate future news and business leaders with diverse backgrounds that are needed for our organizations to build sustainable and successful businesses," said Alfredo Carbajal, managing editor at Al Día/ The Dallas Morning News and co-chair of ASNE's Leadership Committee.
