WTJU has established a formal goal for diversity, which it reviews on an annual basis. Per the requirements of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, WTJU annually reviews its practices to fulfill station’s commitment to diversity. WTJU’s Diversity Plan is posted online here: WTJU-Diversity-Plan

WTJU undertakes one or more of the following initiatives on an annual basis:

  • Include individuals representing diverse groups in internships or work-study programs designed to provide meaningful professional level experience in order to reflect the diversity of the communities we serve and further public broadcasting’s commitment to education;
  • Participate in minority or other diversity job fairs; and/or
  • Implement formal diversity training programs for management and appropriate staff.

 

In FY2016, FY2017, and FY2018, WTJU’s summer and academic year interns represented diverse backgrounds and genders. These interns engaged in meaningful professional experience, including audio production, community engagement, and administration work. Attendees at our two summer youth radio camps also represented diverse backgrounds, genders, and ethnicities.

In FY2018, WTJU organized and hosted the Charlottesville-Albemarle Black Business Expo, in conjunction with its fall concert series. This event drew more than 20 businesses for a day of workshops, networking, and celebration.
