Training

Web-Based Harassment and Bias Prevention Training

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) invites proposals to provide a hosted, interactive, web-based training Program for CPB and public broadcasting station employees that:
1) Addresses common types of harassment and/or discrimination and precautionary measures to take to prevent harassment and/or discrimination.
2) Teaches about stereotypes and biases, how they develop, and how to gain insights into one’s own perspectives and steps to take for their elimination.
3) Provides effective strategies for removing barriers to diversity, and for discouraging and preventing discrimination and harassment in the workplace.
The Program must allow stations to set up and manage their station group user accounts independently from CPB.
The term of the agreement will extend for a period of 3 years, renewable under the same terms and conditions at CPB’s sole discretion for an additional 3 one-year terms.

Ready To Learn Mentor Stations

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), as part of its 2015-20 Ready To Learn initiative (“RTL”) funded by the Ready to Learn Television Program of the U.S. Department of Education, intends to contract with up to six public television stations to act as mentors to 25 stations that will be funded by CPB as RTL Station Training & Implementation funds starting in spring 2020. The mentors must have experience creating advanced digital and educational community engagement resources, through the RTL initiative, and must provide assistance to the stations as they implement these resources in low-income communities with children ages two to eight, and their families and caregivers (“the target audience”).

Ready To Learn Station Training and Implementation

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), as part of its 2015-20 Ready To Learn (RTL) initiative funded by the Ready To Learn Television Program of the U.S. Department of Education, intends to fund up to 25 public television stations to receive hands-on training with advanced digital and educational community engagement resources, developed through the RTL initiative, and assistance to develop and implement these resources in low-income communities that they serve, with children ages two to eight, and their families and caregivers (collectively, the target audience). The goal is to strengthen the target audiences’ early science and literacy learning through programs designed by the stations, using these resources.

Public Media Executive Leadership Program

In order to enhance leadership skills of public media station general managers and other senior leaders in public media, CPB is seeking applications for the development, implementation, and management of a Public Media Leadership Program.
