Diversity Policy

Idaho Public Television

It is the policy of Idaho Public Television to create an environment that supports diversity in all aspects of employment and in the daily operation of the enterprise. This diversity policy also carries over to the communities we serve through programming, community outreach, and our involvement in local and national organizations that promote diversity and inclusion.

At Idaho Public Television we value the contributions of each unique individual regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, veteran status, religious or political beliefs or other ideologies. This policy not only applies to our employment practices but is manifested in our culture where we view diversity as a strength to be developed and encouraged.

We choose to take positive actions to promote and encourage diversity and the personal development of each full-time and part-time employee of our organization, and include individuals representing diverse groups in internships to provide a meaningful professional level experience to represent the diversity of the communities we serve, and to further public broadcasting’s commitment to education.

Idaho Public Television is an equal opportunity employer. We have adopted and will always meet the standards of federal and state law, state statutes, our own Equal Employment Opportunity Policy, and F.C.C. diversity reporting requirements. In addition, as a State of Idaho agency, we support and abide by the State Board of Education’s Equal Employment Opportunity, Diversity, and Sexual Harassment Policies. Since 2013, Idaho Public Television has held an annual diversity training program for management and staff that underscores our continuing commitment to diversity and inclusion throughout the organization.
