Guides & Stylebooks for Newsroom and Media Coverage
National Association of Hispanic Journalists Cultural Competence Handbook
The term “cultural competence” refers to the ability to understand, appreciate and interact with people from a broad range of backgrounds, experiences and viewpoints with respect.
THE PURPOSE OF THIS MANUAL IS TO HELP JOURNALISTS, STUDENTS AND ACADEMICS:
Communicate with and about diverse collectives, recognizing the differences or variety in people’s identities or experiences –– ethnicity, race, national origin, language, gender, religion, ability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic class, immigration status, etc.
Develop a working vocabulary related to diversity issues, avoiding stereotypes
This NAHJ Cultural Competence Handbook is intended to complement the Stylebooks of individual publications such as The Associated Press stylebook –– the leading stylebook in U.S. newsrooms.
The handbook reflects NAHJ’s mission to promote fair, accurate and inclusive coverage of the Latino community.
The Hispanic population in the United States is diverse. With this consideration in mind, we conceived this manual as a living, breathing document that will change as the conversation with users and the experience of journalists require it. This guide will have a Spanish-language version to promote fair and accurate coverage of Latino issues and people within Spanishlanguage publications.
Native American Journalists Association Reporting Guides
The Indigenous Media Guides will help reporters meet these standards by providing a context checklist to consider when reporting on First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities.
