Community Engagement Through Diversity Programming

June 17, 2015

Presented by Beth Curley, CEO, Nashville Public Television and Vicki Smith, Executive Director, Nissan Foundation

Nashville Public Television’s Next Door Neighbors Project has been ongoing since 2007. Through on air and online content, community conversations and literacy trainings, the project looks at Nashville’s growing immigrant and refugee population and introduces these new Nashvillians to their neighbors. The project has been funded through the years by grants from the Nissan Foundation and Hospital Corporation of America as part of their interest in diversity issues. Join NPT CEO Beth Curley and Nissan Foundation Executive Director Vicki Smith for a conversation on one local foundation’s commitment to fostering diversity in the workplace and the community and ways that public media stations can leverage programming on diversity issues in their own communities.
