*State University Civil Service employees are hired through University of Illinois Staff Human Resources office; applicants must be tested and ranked on a register and then referred for interviews from the register.

Section 3. No organizations requested to be notified of vacancies.

Section 4. Supplemental (Non-Vacancy Specific) Outreach/Recruitment Activities Undertaken by WILL/Illinois Public Media during reporting period 8/1/11-7/31/12.

Listing senior management job vacancies with media groups that include women and minorities.  Vacancies for senior management positions, including WILL Station Manager, Director of Development and Director of News & Public Affairs, were posted at several job banks in an effort to recruit women and minorities.  These sources included National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications, Alliance for Women in Media, National Association of Black Journalists, and Native American Journalists Association.  In addition, upper-level positions were posted to Current, the premier trade newspaper for public media.  Current reaches a local and national audience of people involved in public television and public radio at many different levels, from station employees and volunteers to state and national policymakers.

Participation in events relating to career opportunities sponsored by educational institutions.

January 2012              A group of University of Illinois students, many of whom were undecided about their majors, were given a tour of the WILL radio and television stations to give them an awareness of possible careers in media.  Station employees demonstrated a variety of media-related jobs including radio production, television production, operations, on-air delivery, marketing, new media and programming. 

March-April 2012      WILL partnered with the Champaign Unit 4 School District to provide an educational opportunity for all fourth grade classrooms in the District.  Students were given a tour of the radio studios, participated in mock WWII-era interviews in the television studio, and learned how Illinois Public Media (and PBS LearningMedia) use primary source documents in content creation.  Through this program, students were given an early introduction to possible career opportunities in media and broadcasting.

Provide training to management level personnel to ensure equal employment opportunity and prevent discrimination.  All WILL managers and employees completed an educational training by May 31, 2012 called the I-Initiative Workplace Harassment and Discrimination Prevention course, provided by the University of Illinois Office of Equal Opportunity and Access.  This course addressed not only sexual harassment and gender-based actions, but also other forms of discrimination, harassment, and inappropriate conduct based on race, sexual orientation, religion, disability, and other characteristics.  This initiative strengthened our commitment to educating staff on methods for understanding and navigating workplace harassment and discrimination issues, as well as fostering healthy work environments.
