  • Remembering Dori J. Maynard

    Dori J. Maynard

    Dori J. Maynard has been a model for those of us working on the Media Diversity Forum. We have appreciated her advice and sharing of information, and we value the leadership she and the Maynard Institute have provided to efforts across this country to increase diversity and social justice in the media. We knew she always would be available when we reached out to her. But most of all we will miss her as a wonderful person and a true friend.
