PRX's mission is to lead changes that expand public media as a trusted source of knowledge, information, and inspiration for all. Strong public media is anchored in journalism, strengthened with diverse voices and amplified by innovative technology, but the industry is mired in longstanding systemic inequities and lags considerably when it comes to access, inclusivity and sustainability. The Leading Edge Fellow will join PRX Productions, a BIPOC-led unit focused on high-quality audio production and storytelling, to develop an impact framework focused on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. The fellow will work directly with the Productions Executive Producer on assessing new projects coming into the portfolio, as well as prospecting with the Chief of Business Development and Content on yet unacquired work. The fellow’s project will directly help to reform the very essence of public media gatekeeping, which has long rested in the hands of a privileged few.
