The West Virginia Educational Broadcasting Authority (EBA)
is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity
and inclusion. Our human capital is the
most valuable asset we have. The collective sum of the individual differences,
life experiences, knowledge, innovation, self-expression unique capabilities
and talent that our employees invest in their work represents a significant
part of not only our culture but our reputation and achievements.
We embrace and encourage our employees’ differences in age
color, disability, ethnicity family or marital status, gender identity or
expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, political
affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran
status and other characteristics that make our employees unique.
The EBA’s diversity initiatives are applicable – but not
limited – to our practices and policies on recruitment and selection:
compensation and benefits, professional development and training, promotions,
transfers, social and recreational programs, layoffs; terminations, and the
ongoing development of a work environment built on the premise of gender and
diversity equity that encourages and enforces:
Respectful communication and cooperation between
Teamwork and employee participation permitting the representation of all
Work/life balance through flexible work
schedules to accommodate employees’ varying needs
All employees of the EBA have a responsibility to treat
others with dignity and respect at all times.
All employees are expected to exhibit conduct that reflects inclusion
during work, at work functions on or off the work site, and at all other EBA sponsored
and participative events. All employees
are also required to complete annual diversity awareness training to enhance
their knowledge to fulfill this responsibility.
Any employee found to have exhibited any inappropriate
conduct or behavior against others may be subject to disciplinary action.
All employees who believe they have been subjected to any
kind of discrimination that conflicts with the Authority’s diversity policy and
initiatives should seek assistance from a supervisor or an HR representative.
