WUWF Diversity Statement & Policy

Diversity Statement

WUWF realizes that a diverse workforce, management team, and governing body contribute greatly to our knowledge and understanding of our service area’s diverse communities, and to our ability to deliver content and services that will help us attract, grow and engage audiences and help them to achieve their full potential. We endeavor to recruit from a broad pool of candidates enabling us to hire and promote qualified candidates with a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds, personal experiences and characteristics, and talents that reasonably reflect the diverse needs and interests of the communities served by WUWF.

WUWF will continue to explore new opportunities for achieving and promoting this diversity and to monitor and evaluate our success, always meeting the standards of federal and state law, our Equal Employment Opportunity Policy, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting’s Diversity Eligibility Criteria.

WUWF Diversity Policy

WUWF Public Media is committed to ensuring that its workforce and governing boards reflect the diversity found in the communities it serves.   Central to our mission, vision and values is maintaining a governing and workplace environment which recognizes and celebrates the power of diversity. WUWF strives to create and foster a supportive environment in which all individuals can be successful and reach his or her full potential within the organization.

WUWF seeks a diverse workforce and governing body through distinct personalities and capabilities of each individual within the group. On a personal level, the diversity of an individual is defined by his or her cultural and personal differences, as well as life and professional experiences.

WUWF believes that diversity considerations extend beyond race and gender. The spectrum of diversity also includes disability, religious belief, age, culture, sexual orientation, physicality, education and socio- economic status.

WUWF is an equal opportunity employer and will attempt to recruit a diverse work force and explicitly forbid discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, disability and marital status.
