Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement

We, the staff, DJs, and other members of the Mayflower Hill Broadcasting Corporation (MHB), swear to provide a safe space for members of every background, opinion, ability, and identity. 

We recognize that the majority of our paid staff has historically been white and male presenting. As a result, we commit ourselves to encouraging students of all identities to apply for positions regardless of their experience in radio and music.

We recognize that MHB Studios is one of the few student-run spaces on campus. As a result, we prioritize the health and well being of all members of our community and those who share our space. We also acknowledge the physical inaccessibility of the space, and strive to provide support and resources outside of the MHB Studios.

We recognize the disproportionate effects that COVID has had on certain demographics and communities. As a result, we have implemented a set of health and safety guidelines to keep all of our community members safe. These guidelines include cleaning rooms and equipment between usage, occupancy limits, and food restrictions.

We recognize that we are an organization that has historically benefited greatly from Black artists. Within our history, MHB has relied heavily on music from Black artists, especially within the Hip Hop community. As a result, even as we shifted away from Hip Hop, we continue to play music that is heavily influenced by Black culture to this day. 

MHB as an entity and as a club vows to provide a safe space for all members of the Colby and Waterville community, regardless of their background and identity. We will continue to provide FM Radio as a medium and a platform for everyone and anyone to broadcast their creativity, so long as they are abiding by these standards.
