The public media industry is finally coming to grips with how overwhelmingly “white” and unprepared it is to address systemic inequities, but the conversations taking place are not new to us. Those of us who identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC) are often on the receiving end of biased behavior. When left unchecked, the insidious nature of subtle discrimination, microaggressions, off-color remarks, and, in some cases, blatant racism and colorism adds to the trauma we are experiencing.
If you are feeling fatigued, know that you are not alone.
Our Hour is a monthly town-hall gathering focused on connection and empowerment for public media Professionals of Color. In order to create safe space, our sessions will not be recorded. Register below to join us, add your name to stay informed about upcoming events, and spread the word about Our Hour to BIPOC colleagues.
- The next Our Hour session will be announced soon.
