WLAE-TV Diversity Statement

WLAE-TV is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion to follow along with our mission statement. WLAE-TV values and respects all individuals in our community, and recognizes that factors such as race, color, national origin, gender, age, religion, or physical or mental disability and other characteristics is what makes individuals unique. We serve all parts of the New Orleans community and strive to reflect our community as we educate, inform and inspire.

WLAE-TV knows that a diverse workforce, management team, governing body and community advisory board contribute greatly to our understanding and knowledge of New Orleans’ diverse community. Recognizing this helps us in our ability to deliver quality content and services to attract and grow audiences. We strive to recruit from a broad workforce of candidates enabling us to hire and promote qualified candidates with a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds and with experiences and talents that reasonably reflect the diverse city and region served by WLAE-TV. Our staff and boards reflect the population of New Orleans with men and women from diverse backgrounds representing the communities that we serve.

We believe that we have assembled a WLAE-TV organization that is reflective of the Gulf South region. We will continue to seek new opportunities for achievement and promotion of diversity and to monitor and measure our success. The policies that we adopt will always meet the standards of state and federal law, WLAE-TV’s Equal Employment Opportunity regulations and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting’s Diversity Eligibility Criteria.
