This site provides access to many of SRG's current projects and an archive of key material from earlier initiatives. Each of the major section titles below will take you to an overview of that area and links to reports, presentations, and other materials.

DIVERSITY | EQUITY | INCLUSION
SRG members are committed to be more diverse, inclusive, and fair organizations that rectify racism and sexism and better reflect the diversity of the communities they serve.

SRG has a multi-part, multi-year plan to amplify diversity within member organizations and to encourage programming and services in which a wider range of the public can hear and see themselves.

Forums for members and national leaders are exploring concrete efforts, plans, and results of DEI work. Recordings and materials from many of the forums are available here.

STRENGTHENING LOCAL JOURNALISM
Local public media organizations across the country are strengthening their roles as primary and essential providers of local public service journalism.

SRG members are building capacity with more "feet on the street" to report, more editors and producers to sharpen the work, and more technology options to present reporting on devices and in formats that audiences will choose to use.

Reports on the opportunities of the moment, growth in the number of local journalists, the coverage of stations committed to local news, and an approach to more engaged journalism are availabe in this section.

FUNDRAISING
Listener support and underwriting are the economic engines that drive public radio's financial growth. SRG has tracked revenue from these key sources and ways to increase stations' indiviudal and collective performance. This section has reports from some of public media's fundraising leaders and SRG's own research.

GOVERNANCE
Aligning our structures with our public service mission, whether at independent organizations, universities, or other institutions.

AUDIENCE SERVICE
SRG works with stations to help them achieve wider use and deeper value for their work. This section includes SRG's comprehensive Grow the Audience materials – original research, think pieces, and action recommendation. It also includes essays and reports from SRG's archive that track the evolution of strategies for audience service over the years.
