Diversity of personnel and of content is also a critical goal of KRCB.  To that end, the Board of Directors has adopted the following statement regarding diversity, our commitments and our intentions.
 
Rural California Broadcasting Corporation, licensee of KRCB and KRCB FM, is mindful of the importance of the reflection of our community's diversity in our work and in our workforce.  To support diversity, the Board of directors commits to making all reasonable efforts to have our workforce, especially in our management team, reflect that community diversity.  In addition, in choosing our Board, our committees, and our Community Advisory Council, every effort will be made to reflect that community diversity.  The past few years have seen good progress in this direction with the addition of several bilingual, bicultural staff members, African American staffers, and the continuing strength of women in management positions.  In order to continue this success, KRCB commits to participate in minority and other diversity job and opportunity fairs.  To the degree possible we will also seek and include diverse individuals in internships and work-study programs.
 
KRCB is also aware of the importance of programming which reflects the diversity of our community.  To that end we continue to air Spanish language children's' programming whenever available, translate local productions when funding permits, support the production and airing of Outbeat Salon by a dedicated team of volunteers, air Undercurrents, a production of Native Voices 1, and work closely with our local Spanish language public radio station, KBBF.
 
KRCB does not discriminate on the basis of disability in admission or access to, or employment in, its programs and activities.
