Diversity Statement

At Station KWAX, we are committed to diversity and inclusion so we can support the diverse Western Oregon community. We strive to reflect this commitment through all our platforms and formats and at all levels of our organization. This Diversity Statement is in addition to the commitment to diversity and inclusion that all University of Oregon departments and programs strive for.

Diversity and Inclusion goals for Station KWAX include:

  • 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 any internship and work-study student opportunities that may be made available.

KWAX diversity and inclusion efforts going forward will focus on:

  • A commitment to include diverse topics including race, gender, disability, geography, religious belief, age, culture, sexual orientation, physicality, education, professional experience and socio-economic status in the regular and special programming we offer.
  • Recruitment efforts to broaden the diversity of our staff when job opportunities are available by seeking out qualified candidates from diverse backgrounds and who have diverse perspectives.
  • Engagement with our listeners to understand and respect unique perspectives and experiences to continually improve our broadcasts.
  • An annual review with the university’s Board of Trustees to ensure our practices are designed to fulfill KWAX’s commitment to diversity and inclusion and annual training for all KWAX employees on harrassment, diversity, and inclusion to ensure compliance with federal and state laws; including FCC, the station’s Equal Employment Opportunity Policy, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting’s Diversity Eligibility Criteria

KWAX is committed to bringing in more people from diverse backgrounds. KWAX’s goal to diversity and inclusion spreads from hiring diverse people to connecting with diverse audience members. KWAX employees will engage in diversity and inclusions training. This training will help KWAX become more diverse and inclusive so that our employees and audience members can feel valued and empowered to contribute their ideas and perspectives to KWAX. 

Our diversity and inclusion objectives, and progress towards achieving them, will be assessed annually to ensure they align with our service and talent objectives.
