The American Society of News Editors is committed to promoting leadership skills, First Amendment rights, newsroom diversity, community engagement and news literacy.
Leading a newsroom can be a demanding task, but ASNE is here to provide guidance. We provide training and advice from some of the industry’s leading professionals. ASNE also offers guidance and training specifically to new and emerging leaders.
Promoting diversity in news staffing, content and coverage has been at the heart of ASNE for the past 30-plus years. Our annual Newsroom Diversity Survey seeks to gauge how well newsrooms across the country reflect the communities they serve.
ASNE also champions First Amendment and freedom of information issues. ASNE launched and coordinates the nationwide Sunshine Week to draw attention to open records and freedom of information law. ASNE General Counsel Kevin Goldberg maintains a members-only legal hotline and is available to answer routine questions.
