A data analysis tool that shows which voices get heard in the media. The Diversity Meter supports the development of diversity in journalism and media.
The meter analyses data archives provided by media companies. It can be used in any Web browser. You can study the representation of different actors in media contents by running a variety of searches.
The Diversity Meter project is driven by the trust in the power of dialogue. We believe that better journalism and more constructive public discourse can be supported by helping people listen to different viewpoints.
The team behind the Diversity Meter consists of active members of Sopiva (the Association for Conciliatory Journalists). The association develops new methods in journalism through research, experimentation and collaboration. Conciliatory Journalism makes use of methods of dialogue and mediation in order to do better journalism about conflict-prone and polarized topics. The aim is not consensus, but increased multi-voiced understanding.
