Article Eight, Other Committees of the
Board of Directors,
Section 4: Committees of Inclusion
In addition, there shall be established, in each of the
Foundation's radio station areas, standing committees of the Board to monitor the under-representation of
communities in their respective radio station areas. These "Committees of Inclusion" shall include one
Director and three LSB members from each radio station area who shall be elected by their respective LSBs, and such
additional individuals as those four shall choose by majority vote. The Committees of Inclusion will monitor both
station programming and staffing in consultation with the LSBs. They will also monitor the diversity of election
candidates and work with the LSBs' appropriate committees to improve the diversity of election candidates at the
local and national level. These Committees of Inclusion shall monitor diversity participation in consultation with the
general manager, local committees and the Board, the status of which will be published and maintained in each respective
radio station area. Communities deemed to be under-represented by the Committees of Inclusion will be identified and the
extent of their under-representation shall be communicated to the Board, the respective LSBs and any local outreach
committees. Station managers and appropriate LSB committees will be expected to consider these communities in their
future decisions about staffing, programming, and candidate outreach, subject to any applicable state and federal laws
and regulations. All station managers and Committees of Inclusion will report to the Board and their respective LSBs
quarterly on the status of diversity within their radio station areas. The Board shall query and monitor radio station
areas with identified under-represented communities and any plans for addressing these under-represented
communities' increased participation. Where necessary with due notice, the Board will suggest and/or direct managers
and committees to implement specific measures to improve the status of under-represented communities in their respective
radio station areas. The Board will assist and encourage station managers and Committees of Inclusion in finding new
ways to improve recruitment efforts in their respective radio station areas.
