Earlier this year the National Association of Broadcasters Leadership Foundation launched the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Resource Center, a website dedicated to helping media companies and industry professionals create and sustain a diverse and inclusive workplace. Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) programs are designed to help companies embrace unique perspectives and voices. 

In this episode of Update-1, the NAB's Chief Diversity Officer and Leadership Foundation President Michelle Duke talks with Broadcast Podcast team member Sarah Dolezal about the role the NAB plays in improving DEI initiatives at radio and television stations and networks throughout the country. She discusses the "journey" that broadcast companies are on, the successes she has seen with their DEI efforts, and what organizations still have to do to impact change.
