Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging (DEIB)

At NOFA Foundation, we nurture a culture of belonging where everyone feels seen, heard, safe and valued.

Our Commitment

NOFA Foundation is committed to using its power as a public media force to promote equity and mitigate bias on a systemic level. We do this by designing and creating content that is reflective of and accessible to the diverse communities we serve and by developing Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) initiatives and resources with and for our employees.

Change from Within

Internally, NOFA Foundation will develop and implement institutional changes that prioritize racial equity and inclusion for all. We will probe our unconscious biases, raise awareness of systemic bias and craft policies that will lead to lasting behavioral changes. To build a stronger NOFA Foundation, we must ensure that all employees can fully contribute their unique skills and perspectives in a safe and supportive environment.

Action Plan

To help achieve these goals, we have engaged with nationally renowned Diversity, Equity and Inclusion consultants in a multiyear partnership. They will work with NOFA Foundation employees and leadership to assess current realities, develop a long-term vision for an inclusive organization and craft strategic plan objectives in four phases over the course of 18 months.
