Primordial Equality Advisory Group Expression of Interest

We are creating the Primordial Equality Advisory Group to guide us in making Primordial Radio even more of a welcoming and inclusive place.

Occasionally people get things wrong, us included. No matter how good we currently are, we’d like to be better

Help us stick to Rule #1

 

Why are we doing this?

  • To create an independent advisory body that helps Primordial Radio develop and maintain an equal, inclusive, and diverse culture.

What are we looking for?

  • Interest in making Primordial an inclusive and welcoming space for all
  • Lived Experience that can provide a different perspective – if you identify as a woman, disabled, BAME or LGBT+ we want to hear from you?
  • Expertise or experience in the field of equality, diversity and inclusion – this could be in relation to HR, comms, research or anything!

What will you need to do?

  • This is a work in progress so this could be subject to change, but it’s envisioned that membership of the advisory group would require 2-3 hours per month of your time.
  • The aim of the group is to provide independent, advice and guidance so the station can evolve in a way that is welcoming and inclusive to all, and to ensure this commitment to inclusion is reflected in all the station does
    There may be a slightly greater time commitment at the outset as processes and structures are being created and as we settle in and find the best ways of working
  • All involvement will be facilitated virtually so there would be no expectation to travel

Aims

  • The Primordial community is inclusive, representative and welcoming to all
  • Primordial Radio makes a positive contribution to a more equal, fair and inclusive society
  • Inclusive decision-making that puts commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion into practice
  • Checks and balances ensure external content presented by the station is in line with commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion

Objectives

  • Set up an independent group, that is representative of diverse experiences, to provide advice and guidance to Primordial’s Directors
  • Create process for referring issues/ concerns raised with the Directors about content that may fall short of equality and inclusion commitments to the Advisory Group
  • Create guidance for representatives of Primordial to inform decisions about content published under the Primordial banner to ensure it is inclusive and aligns with equality and inclusion commitment
  • Create a checklist to support inclusive decision-making (and supporting process for engaging the Advisory Group as part of planning and decision-making)
  • Create a system for regular audits of content and reflections on past decisions to ensure consistent alignment with equality and inclusion commitments
