Loveland Magazine in Ohio Explores SF State's Diversity Style Guide

Friday, July 17, 2020

LOVELAND MAGAZINE (OHIO) -- To start off, this guide was developed as a project of the Center for Integration and Improvement of Journalism at the San Francisco State University. According to the website, it “brings together definitions and information from more than two dozen style guides, journalism organizations and other resources.” Historically, this resource was developed in the 1990s by CIIJ’s News Watch program which then paved the way for a newly updated one (this one).

Conglomerated into this one guide, its contents include terminology related to “race/ethnicity, disability, immigration, sexuality and gender identity, drugs and alcohol and geography.” An exemplar here shows the structure of how the guide works, alongside a glossary for easy use.
