WBHM believes that establishing a workplace that embraces diversity and inclusion is part of our mission. We believe our staff should mirror people in our communities. We pledge to be a place where everyone has a seat and a voice at the table: to ensure WBHM’s structures, policies, processes, and practices are inclusive, free of bias and assume diversity of background, lived experiences and perspectives among all employees. WBHM is committed to being a place that empowers everyone to work towards these ideals.
As we move toward a more inclusive and equitable workplace, we will explore all the functions of WBHM: from what we cover and how we seek out sources for stories, to who we form financial partnerships with, to the recruitment of new employees. We’ll also identify ways to reach non-traditional public radio audiences through multi-platform programming and evaluate where and how we engage our community.
We invite you to continually learn with us, hold us accountable, and to offer ideas and solutions to make WBHM a resource for all.
