This is what community engagement means at KUOW.
Our Community Engagement team ensures that KUOW has a meaningful and interactive relationship with the dynamic communities of the Puget Sound region and beyond. We are committed to amplifying your voice, listening to your feedback and ideas, and creating innovative opportunities to connect you to our newsroom.
We welcome diversity in all of its forms in all of our endeavors.
Here are a few examples of our projects. Ask A is our series of gatherings building empathy one one-on-one conversation at a time. Curiosity Club is our nerdy supper club that is investigating the possibility that great food and compelling storytelling can transform a group of strangers into a community. Meet The Newsmakers is our series of free public conversations with KUOW reporters at the University Book store and libraries across the region that invites listeners to ask questions, offer feedback, and share ideas for what our newsroom should be covering.
We're eager to hear from you so don't hesitate to reach out. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and connect with us on Twitter at @KUOWengage.
