Race Relations in 2005: Draft Report

The Human Rights Commission is currently working on a report on Race Relations in 2005. Attached are some extracts concerning diversity and the media. They include the ten point programme for diversity and the media as revised after network feedback. Your comments on the draft, including any suggestions concerning omissions or inaccurarcies, would be appreciated. The report is due to be released in February/March, ahead of Race Relations Day on March 21.

New Developments for 2006
The NZ Herald has appointed Julie Middleton as a "race and demography" (read diversity) reporter

Lincoln Tan has launched his bi-lingual Asian I-Ball newspaper in Auckland

Radio Waatea is now providing daily news bulletins to Radio New Zealand
The Journalism Training Organisation has commissioned discussion papers from Gary Wilson and Lincoln Tan on the media and Maori and Pacific peoples and Asian peoples respectively.

The JTO has also commissioned a revision of Kawe Korero, Michael King's guide to reporting Maori news

The JTO and the Human Rights Commission are discussing the holding of a one day forum for media practitioners on diversity and the media in association with the New Zealand Diversity Forum to be held in August

The JTO plans to add a diversity section to its website
Niu FM is holding a series of language weeks for eight Pacific languages from 20 February to 10 April.

A number of media have indicated support for and participation in Race Relations Day on 21 March, for which the theme is Aotearoa, New Zealand, Turangawaewae, Our Home. An attractive poster for your office is available free from nzdiversity@hrc.co.nz .

The Human Rights Commission has now established a web page for the media and diversity network as part of the New Zealand Diversity Action Programme web pages (see www.hrc.co.nz/diversity and click on media and diversity). The Commission hopes that media organisations will identify projects they intend to undertake that will contribute to the programme and list them on the site.

Nga mihi o te tau hou

All the best for 2006
