Introducing The 2021 State of Audio.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Our Commitment

We are a place where all employees can achieve their goals and contribute to our collective success.

And for our communities, we create inspiring content, conversations and experiences that are as unique and varied as the listeners we serve. 

Through celebrating our diverse teams to strengthen a culture of inclusion and respect, and doing our part to foster an equitable nation, we put our values into action—because it’s always the right thing to do. ​

Bold conversations. Community empowerment. That’s the power of audio when it’s backed by the kind of deep understanding we’re gaining through our national and local partnerships with the Urban League.  By aligning with economic and social justice priorities, we’re bringing listeners and clients relevant, representative market-specific promotional support under the shared nationwide umbrella of PSAs, guest appearances by Urban League leaders on community affairs shows, dedicated features, and co-led virtual and in-person events.

Partnered with Clark Atlanta University, one of our nation’s HBCUs, we’re sharing our experiences to help students prepare to become the media and entertainment leaders of tomorrow. They gain practical insights, and we gain perspectives and connections with the next generation of influencers and audio consumers. We also offer exciting internships, fellowships, and job opportunities to springboard students from college to career. We’re proud to invest in the next generation of audio leaders and innovators.

We want tomorrow’s best audio entertainment leaders to start their careers today, with us. Our yearlong fellowship experiences, which include curated on-the-job learning and growth opportunities, welcome graduates from underrepresented groups and underserved communities, as well as others who demonstrate the talent and desire to pursue a career in audio. We’re excited to see how these best-in-class fellows develop into future leaders in an inclusive, highly engaged, and knowledgeable workforce, and how our team—and the audio industry— is further strengthened through diversity.

Built by and for our LGBTQ+ community and its allies, CHANNEL Q is an innovative media destination that gives everyone a voice through exceptional programming that entertains, informs, and inspires.

In celebration of Pride 365, and in collaboration with LA Pride and the Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative, CHANNEL Q hosted a panel discussion on corporate responsibility and the importance of workplace diversity. CHANNEL Q’s Morning Beat host, AJ Gibson, moderated a panel including leaders from Unilever, Jet Blue, Nike, T-Mobile, Master Card, Nationwide, and NBA.
