WUNC Radio Statement on Diversity
WUNC Radio strives to maintain and support a staff, advisory board and program service that reflects the communities it serves. By design, WUNC is a media outlet that celebrates the power of diversity on-air, online and in the workplace. WUNC believes that diversity considerations include race, gender, disability, protected veterans, religious belief, age, nationality, sexual orientation, gender-identity, physicality, education and socio-economic status.

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting’s Diversity Eligibility Criteria require that public media organizations like WUNC formally adopt goals for diversity and report to the community progress towards reaching those goals. With that in mind, WUNC has the following goals and guiding principles related to diversity:

  • To recruit, support and retain a diverse workplace that represents the community it serves. Particular attention is paid to the staff that create content.
  • To produce content that includes diverse voices, opinions and perspectives.
  • To provide equal opportunity in employment and follow all EEO guidelines and principles set forth by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
  • To seek candidates for WUNC’s Board of Directors that represent the geographically diverse communities it serves.
  • To create and maintain opportunities for emerging radio professionals from diverse backgrounds to develop the skills needed to succeed in Public Radio.

WUNC Radio Donor Information Security Procedures
Donor privacy and security is a top priority for WUNC Radio. Gifts received during on-air pledge drives are recorded manually by WUNC staff and volunteers who are closely supervised by WUNC staff. The pledge information is entered into an electronic format that is loaded into a secure database. All electronic pledge submissions are encrypted, secure, and password protected. All stored credit card information is access-restricted to WUNC's database manager.

WUNC Radio Donor List and E-mail Subscriber Privacy Policy
WUNC-FM has always had a policy of absolute donor confidentiality. WUNC-FM has never shared its donor or e-mail lists with any organization. WUNC-FM will never share its donor or e-mail lists with any organization.

WUNC-FM's news and informational programming make up the core of the station's public service. Any activity that undermines the credibility of such programming debases the currency of our realm; and, clearly, trading donor or e-mail lists with political organizations or partisan organizations would undermine the station's reputation for balance, fairness, and accuracy. Moreover, a listener's decision to support WUNC-FM or to join a WUNC mailing list is a fundamentally private decision. WUNC-FM is committed to keeping that decision private.
