Strategies and Best Practice to achieve Diverse and Inclusive TV Content Offers

When Pieces Fit

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) are critical to the mission of public-service broadcasters, who are charged with creating programming offers that are relevant across every part of the societies they serve. Implementation of strong DEI policies can allow broadcasters to increase their reach and better meet the needs of their audiences.

This panel session aims to showcase examples and case studies of where diversity and inclusivity initiatives at organizational, commissioning or production levels have yielded particularly successful content initiatives.
