KMFA has enjoyed the support of the Central Texas community since 1967. As a listener-supported classical music resource, KMFA is committed to ensuring that its workforce, management, governing board and advisory boards reflect the diversity of the community it serves. KMFA believes that diversity considerations in the community include not only gender and race, but also age, disability, culture, education, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status.
More than half of the KMFA staff is female, two of them in top leadership positions. On-air talent includes two young Hispanics in music programming, and a Black reporter covering community and national music stories. This means that three of six regularly heard on-air voices are minorities, with a total KMFA staff minority count of 31%.
KMFA has undertaken diversity initiatives in its community outreach, recently adding a representative of Austin’s HBCU Huston-Tillotson University, an Hispanic music educator, and several millennials to its community advisory board. Qualified diversity candidates are interviewed for leadership openings. Management also participates regularly in minority and student job fairs.
The KMFA board of directors has also defined greater board diversity as a key priority. At present minorities comprise 14% of the board. Additional prospects are being identified to be approached for membership in the coming year.
KMFA management will continue to recruit and retain a diverse workforce that is representative of our service area, will provide equal opportunity in employment, and will offer ongoing diversity training for appropriate staff. We will also seek to expand our reach into traditionally underserved communities by recruiting additional minority members for the community advisory board.
With its new home located in an economically challenged section of East Austin, and when it is safe to do so in light of pandemic restrictions, KMFA plans to expand its presence and its programming to engage a broad cross-section of the community.
