WEKU Diversity Statement

WEKU strives to ascertain that its staff is reflective of the diverse population it serves. Additionally, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting’s (CPB) Diversity Eligibility Criteria requires public media organizations to adopt formal goals for diversity and to report annually on steps taken to work toward those goals. These actions are required for all stations receiving Community Service Grant funds (CSG).

To that end, WEKU has set the following diversity goals:

  • To recruit and retain a diverse workforce that is representative of our service area.
  • To provide equal opportunity in employment.
  • To educate our management and staff annually in best practices for maintaining an inclusive and diverse environment for all persons.
  • To assist in developing a more diverse future workforce with professional skills in the broadcasting/media industry by recruiting diverse candidates for WEKU internship opportunities and/or by participating in minority or other diversity job fairs.

In addition, WEKU shall undertake one of the following initiatives on an annual basis:

  • Include individuals representing diverse groups in internships or work-study programs designed to provide meaningful professional level experience in order to reflect the diversity of the communities they serve and further public broadcasting’s commitment to education;
  • Participate in minority or other diversity job fairs; or
  • Implement formal diversity training programs for management and appropriate staff.

WEKU will also interview at least one qualified diversity candidate as available for each senior leadership position hired. The term senior leadership position includes General Manager, Program Director, Membership Director and News Director.
