KDHX Diversity Statement
- Written by Kelly Wells
KDHX believes that to authentically live into its mission to build community through media, the organization must be diverse, inclusive, and anti-racist. Diversity at KDHX is defined as a wide range of nationalities, ethnicities, races, genders, LGBTQIIA+ identities, abilities, economic statuses, ages, and much more. The board, the staff, and the volunteers of KDHX engage in regular, extensive training so that there is a shared understanding of diversity, equity, and inclusion within an organizational context. Dismantling cultural biases is a priority. KDHX seeks to create a sense of belonging for a diverse set of board members, staff, volunteers, and listeners.
KDHX's vision of diversity is reflected in our mission, purpose, and values.
KDHX believes in being people-centered, transparent, and honest and that the proper management of diverse people, things, and ideas is in the best interest of the organization's long-term health and sustainability.
Through the Community Advisory Board, the Board of Directors, and working groups including staff and volunteers, KDHX regularly reviews its policies, strategies, and vision to ensure that its diversity, equity, and inclusion goals are being met.
The KDHX Strategic Plan for 2021-2024 deepens the commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism and outlines specific steps to building capacity in these areas.
