Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Community Radio for Northern Colorado’s mission is to strengthen our community by cultivating the mind and spirit - informing, inspiring, and entertaining. To fully live up to this mission, we strive to include diverse voices and amplify those from groups that are rarely heard in the media.

CRNC is committed to dismantling racism and prejudice in all aspects of our programming and operations. We acknowledge the decades of harm white-dominant media institutions have perpetuated by marginalizing certain populations and groups.

We commit to breaking down stereotypes and being inclusive in our organizational vision and practice.

Moving forward we will respect and celebrate multiple perspectives. We will take steps to build a diverse workforce that goes beyond race and gender to include age, culture, disability, religious belief, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status, and socioeconomic status. We are actively working to build an inclusive culture that reflects, honors, and serves our diverse listeners, and rejects white supremacy, religious persecution, and other forms of discrimination and alienation of groups.

We strive to make CRNC an example for other media organizations by modeling diversity, equity, and inclusion within our organization.
