Additional Efforts in the Area of Diversity
- Including a diverse group of individuals in the agency's internship programs. ETV annually hosts students from all across the state and even the nation in its Endowment Internship program and through its internships for college credit. These students reflect a broad range of cultures and ethnicities, and represent public and private institutions, traditionally African-American Universities and other institutions which are historically committed to focusing on women's education.The link to ETV's FCC reporting is here in the Annual EEO Public File report for the Federal Communications Commission.
- Developing a Diversity Policy and distributing it to the workforce. ETV has long had an Affirmative Action policy and a policy addressing harassment in the workplace. A new diversity policy was recently developed and reviewed with the agency's governing Commission. You may read it below.
- Setting Goals for Diversity in the Workforce. ETV sets affirmative action goals through the SC State Human Affairs Commission. These are annual goals of diversity in the workforce which are measured from October 1 through September 30 of each year. The annual results of goal attainment are reported at the beginning of the following calendar year. You may find our goals and attainment levels on page 47 at the following link
- This year, managers are receiving diversity training through a course called “Valuing Diversity.”
