All Things Being Equal: Gender Equality Guidelines from Public Service Media

This report explores the strategies that underpin a gender-equal media organization: workplace data and staff feedback to diagnose the issues; effective workplace policy to support equality of opportunity; and enabling a positive workplace culture through flexibility, leadership and behaviours to retain talent.

Engaging men in the conversation alongside women and securing their equal participation is vital to success. It is clear from the results of the work already taking place at EBU Members’ organizations that there are significant cultural benefits to be gained for everyone in the workforce. This includes significant creative gains.

This work draws on a number of principles that the EBU is committed to:

  • that gender equality is not only a fundamental human right but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world;
  • that the global economy cannot operate at its full potential while systematic constraints are holding back a significant proportion of the world’s population;
  • that equality and diversity are indispensable in true democratic societies.
