Campaign to increase diversity in broadcasting launched at Edinburgh International Television Festival
Chris was delighted to launch a new government-backed project aimed at unlocking economic and creative potential by increasing the diversity of people working in Britain’s television sector at the Edinburgh International Television Festival on Friday 28th August.
The event was chaired by Trevor Phillips and Ed Vaizey, Culture minister, conceded that there was still “much, much more” to do on improving diversity in broadcasting.
The guide will provide expert legal guidance on what is permitted under the law for employers, commissioners and others working within the sector. The guidance will also help broadcasters expand the talent pool from which they find the best candidates and will cover areas including employment, commissioning, broadcasting, programme making and procurement practices.
