WUKY affirms that in a country and a community that has been rapidly diversifying, where people of color will be the majority in a couple of decades, it is imperative to the survival of our organization and the success of our service to rapidly diversify our programming, audiences, donors, staff and leadership.
To accomplish this WUKY commits to:
- Present more diverse voices on air and seek out more diverse sources for news.
- Reach more diverse audiences through our broadcasts, new media and community events.
- Attract more diverse listeners, members and underwriters.
- Increase efforts to diversify the WUKY staff.
Beyond the clear business case for diversity, WUKY is taking these steps because these actions are right, just, fair, and inclusive.
