WASHINGTON D.C.— The National Association of Broadcasters (opens in new tab) is among several organizations pledging to strengthen “diversity, equity and inclusion” in government relations.

“NAB is proud to be one of four early adopters of the DGR pledge, along with America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), Signal Group and Women’s Global Impact Initiative,” wrote Vice President of Government Relations Charlyn Stanberry, who joined NAB in April.

“As we continue to advocate before members of Congress and the administration, we will continue to recruit, hire and promote talent that represents the richness of our nation and broadcasting ecosystem.”

The pledge is an initiative of the DGR Coalition (opens in new tab). Stanberry wrote about NAB’s perspective on the issue in a blog post about the pledge (opens in new tab).

“While there is still much work to be done, one of the unique aspects local broadcasters have is their ability to reflect the diverse communities they serve,” she wrote. “This effort extends to the work we do within NAB.”
