NABLF Launches Resource Center to Advance Diversity, Inclusion And Equity In The Workplace
The National Association of Broadcasters Leadership Foundation (NABLF) has launched the Diversity, Inclusion and Equity Resource Center, a website dedicated to helping media companies and industry professionals create and sustain a diverse and inclusive workplace.
The resource center connects organizations with associations and consultants with expert knowledge of diversity, inclusion and equity (DEI) issues. These connections can help companies reassess business strategies, launch diversity initiatives that embrace unique perspectives and voices, and provide education programs for leadership teams and staff to better integrate DEI in their operations. The resource center also provides information about personal, professional development courses to help individuals expand their knowledge and expertise about DEI.
“As our nation engages in ongoing discussions about diversity and inclusion, NABLF is committed to helping organizations realize workplaces that are welcoming to all voices,” said NABLF President and National Association of Broadcasters Chief Diversity Officer Michelle Duke. “By launching the Diversity, Inclusion and Equity Resource Center, we can connect organizations with the expertise and experience they need to foster an open and inviting culture.”
Race and diversity was also the topic of a TVNewsCheck webinar, Report Card on Race: A Media Industry Reckoning, which found the television news industry still has a long way to go with its diversity and inclusion efforts, but there’s a genuine and sustained momentum underway for change.
