Producer: Gender Equity Programming

CFUV 101.9 FM
University of Victoria Student Radio Society

Job Description:

CFUV 101.9 FM is Victoria’s non-profit, volunteer-driven campus/community radio station located in the basement of the Student Union Building at UVic. In the late 1990s, CFUV volunteers identified an imbalance in the representation and inclusion of genders in broadcasting, and at CFUV. In order to address this, they decided to create programming that was specifically dedicated to including and highlighting women at the station. This group of volunteers later began identifying themselves as the ‘Women’s Radio Collective.’ The Women’s Radio Collective is open to all volunteers that identify themselves as women, femme, non-binary, gender fluid – anyone who is marginalized by gender.

In order to continue building on this important work, CFUV will be launching a 1 hour Spoken Word program called Taking Up Space. The program will highlight topics, issues and events that focus on marginalized communities from an intersectional feminist perspective. It will be one of the magazine-style programs included in CFUV’s Spoken Word programming series called CFUV Speaks. The program will be driven by a team of volunteers in distinct roles (Editor, Script-Writer, Host, Technician, and Interviewer).

The Gender Equity Producer manages Taking Up Space; they will supervise, mentor and sometimes train volunteers who are part of the Taking Up Space team. They are the Producer of the program and will ultimately be responsible for the production of it each week.
