Here we are. The last month of the longest year. We know it’s been hard. You've covered stories you never imagined. And rose to the challenge. We remain committed to supporting you, our science writing community. Will you consider us this #GivingTuesday?

It’s a bit strange to look back now on this March 2 tipsheet from @laurahelmuth, yet how critical was this wisdom? “The coronavirus epidemic will be one of the most urgent, complex, and quickly moving stories of the year.” theopennotebook.com/2020/03/02/tip…
This was the first of many stories about covering #COVID19 we published this year. In fact, we assembled a whole host of resources to support reporters - from veteran science journalists to general assignment reporters - in their work theopennotebook.com/covering-covid…

Thread: I’m a huge advocate for representation in the media, and the telling of usually marginalised or ‘othered’ stories but often this is so badly done it does more damage than good. So here’s some food for thought...
How to tell an inclusive story; some things to consider...
1. What is the purpose of telling this story? Why do you want this story to be heard?
2. Is the subject’s voice at the centre of the piece? Are you speaking for them? Are u imposing your own world view on their experience? What assumptions are u making?(even in the Q’s you ask)
3. Can the story be told through them? Can you amplify their voice?
4. Are you recreating harmful narrative tropes (even if your intentions are good)? E.g. ‘the good news’ story, white saviour tropes etc
