Icarus Consulting has announced starting in January it will support programming on Atlanta’s Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK as a proud WCLK Business Member.
Icarus Consulting, a veteran-owned and operated diversity, equity, and inclusion consulting firm, advises companies on how to build a diverse workforce and create an inclusive workplace. The WCLK Business Member announcement was made by Icarus’s founder and chief executive officer, Dr. Shelton J. Goode, who recently was recognized by Forbes as one of the top “10 Diversity and Inclusion Trailblazers You Need to Get Familiar With.”
“Over 250,000 people listen to Atlanta’s Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK each week, but only 2,500 listeners are actually WCLK members,” remarked Dr. Shelton J. Goode. “We hope to bridge the gap between listener and member as a business partner.”
Jazz 91.9 WCLK-FM is located on the beautiful and historic campus of Clark Atlanta University, home to the rich history and culture of African Americans.
“Atlanta’s Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK and Clark Atlanta University are important to our community,” commented Dr. Shelton J. Goode. “One of many historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Clark Atlanta University has paved the way for African Americans and people of other races to receive a quality education. HBCUs like Clark Atlanta University has been pivotal in the development of young minds, influential in highlighting the history and culture of African Americans, and effective in providing a means for academic success.”
Celebrating its 46 years of service, Atlanta’s Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK is a public radio station that counts on companies like Icarus Consulting for support. Business members are valuable contributors to the station’s mission and help support the station’s legacy.
