Fake news, disinformation, and a new administration that continues to intentionally discredit journalism and reputable news organizations -- while these issues peaked during the presidential campaign and intensified since Trump took office, trust in media has been eroding for years. However, an effort to address the trust gap is well underway, led by the Trust Project, which is working with researchers, journalists, technologists and designers to create usable tools to indicate trustworthy content. One of the key components to building trust is inclusive, culturally competent and nuanced portrayals of diverse communities. Learn about the indicators of trust and how the Maynard Institute's Fault Lines framework can help you engage your audience and narrow the trust gap.
