As we work to build the region’s most trusted news organization, we are proud to focus our equity mission on:
- Better serving all communities across the Northwest;
- Creating a workplace and culture where all OPB employees feel valued, feel seen and can thrive.
We must serve our audiences more equitably and inclusively.
We are working to amplify the voices of diverse and marginalized individuals and communities, confronting injustices, and holding those in power and those with privilege accountable — beginning with ourselves.
And in order to understand and report on the communities that call this region home, OPB’s staff needs to reflect those communities.
We must foster a culture for our employees in which people of all backgrounds and abilities experience a sense of belonging, safety, value and investment.
“— From OPB's Equity Statement
Our goal is to create a workplace where every employee feels comfortable asking hard questions and challenging the status quo, knowing that their experiences and opinions will be heard and taken seriously.”
