Job Posting: BIPOC Engagement Coordinator

CJAM 99.1 FM – Student Media/University of Windsor – is hiring for the position of BIPOC ENGAGEMENT COORDINATOR. This 1-year contract position is 35 hours a week. It requires a flexible individual who is occasionally available for evening, and weekend duties when required.


CJAM is a nonprofit volunteer-driven campus-based community radio station providing an alternative to the music and spoken-word programming featured in the mainstream media – serving listener communities that are often under represented or maligned.

About the BIPOC Engagement Coordinator position:
The BIPOC Engagement Coordinator will look to outreach and make connections with the University of Windsor campus, including student groups, faculty, and departments. They will engage the community, and make important connections with off campus groups while creating a culture of inclusivity and belonging for BIPOC within CJAM FM. They will work with the Station Manager and Board of Directors to assist in updating the language and reflect societal changes in CJAMs policies and procedures. The BIPOC Engagement Coordinator will create an external contact list for continued and future contact to inform people of volunteer opportunities, job openings, and internships. The Coordinator will host training sessions for our current volunteers on our revised policies and procedures.

While radio, and audio mediums in general, continue to be a predominately white, male-centric line of work, CJAM is aiming to center BIPOC voices, while hiring someone from within this community to do the work, and actively create lasting changes within the organization through policy creation and reform. We think it is important to not just -say- we are diversifying, but actually change our wording, image, and actions to reflect the diversity we want to see. We want to engage BIPOC communities and bring their voices to a larger audience by giving them the tools, resources, experience, and space. CJAM Staff and Board of Directors believe it is time to change the dynamic and view of CJAM FM, starting from the inside. We have yet to make a full statement about the systemic racism on the University of Windsor campus, and within our own framework. We felt there was not enough change happening within the organization to do so. This project aims to take the first steps in addressing these deep-rooted issues.

CJAM FM’s mission is to provide a voice to the under-represented, and through this project we will be able to lay the groundwork within our organization for BIPOC to be more fully represented and garner more opportunities to work in the audio world.

– Outreaching, promoting, and building partnerships with BIPOC students/groups on campus and within the larger community to foster continuity, quality, and relevance in programming and potential volunteers.
