Outlets such as the New York Times strive for the best in journalism, and many understand that a diverse staff is an integral part of that goal. A Meet the Media event featured a discussion of diversity and inclusion overall, as well as at the paper.
Rebecca Blumenstein is Deputy Managing Editor of the New York Times, a post she assumed in 2019. Prior to that she was Deputy Editor in Chief of The Wall Street Journal, the highest-ranking woman to lead the paper’s news organization to date. She’s received numerous awards including overseeing the China team for the Wall Street Journal that won a Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting in 2007.
PRSA-NY hosted the event featuring Rebecca and moderated by Doug Simon, CEO of D S Simon Media.
