Ole Miss Journalism celebrates diversity and inclusion with "It Starts with ME in Meek"

The committee for the "It Starts
with ME in Meek" campaign
The Meek School of Journalism & New Media at the University of Mississippi wants to raise awareness about issues of diversity and inclusion. The School will host a week of activities based around the theme "It Starts with ME in Meek," scheduled for April 19-25.

The schedule of events includes panels, workshops and even a fashion show. There is also a student competition that highlights stories centered on diversity and inclusion. "The campaign's theme asks students to pause before assuming they understand a person based solely on that person's race, gender, religion, disability, sexual orientation, mental illness or other factors," said Robin Street, senior lecturer in IMC at Ole Miss who is chairing the campaign. "One factor does not define who a person is."

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith will make an appearance during the week. He has more on this story, which you can watch below:

"It Starts with ME in Meek" is also generating some good buzz on the School's Facebook and Twitter pages:
