Diversity policy:

KCUR is committed to ensuring that its workforce and community advisory board reflect the diversity found in the communities it serves. Central to KCUR’s mission, vision and values is maintaining a workplace environment that recognizes and celebrates the power of diversity.

KCUR strives to create and foster a supportive environment in which all individuals can be successful and reach his or her full potential within the organization.

KCUR seeks a diverse workforce and community advisory body through distinct personalities and capabilities of each individual within the group. On a personal level, the diversity of an individual is defined by his or her cultural and personal differences, as well as life and professional experiences.

KCUR believes that diversity considerations extend beyond race and gender. The spectrum of diversity also includes color, religion, sexual orientation, gender identify, gender expression, national origin, age, disability, status as a Vietnam era veteran, culture, education and socio-economic status.

KCUR, as a department of the University of Missouri–Kansas City, is an equal opportunity employer and will attempt to recruit a diverse work force and explicitly forbid discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, disability and marital status.
