Sunrise Communications, Inc./KZUM Radio 89.3 FM Diversity Statement

Sunrise Communications, Inc. affirms its commitment to cultural diversity. We recognize and value the ethnic, religious, and racial richness of our community and encourage mutual respect and understanding among all people. We recognize that true excellence in organizations and communities result from identifying, serving and enlisting the participation of all people who represent the rich diversity of our nation’s heritage.

Sunrise Communications acknowledges an unfortunate history in our country of the use of derogatory, stereotypical, and other hurtful characterizations. We resolve to eliminate such portrayals and language from all Sunrise Communications correspondence, interagency communications, and events.

Sunrise Communications believes in the accessibility and affordability of human services for all people. We partner with agencies which serve without regard to gender, race, religion, age, sexual orientation, disability, intelligence, size, appearance, and low economic status; and recruit staff and board members who represent diverse populations.
