Diversity and Public Service Media

The 2023 report on DEI offers a deep-dive into Public Service Media (PSM) strategies related to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and gives a unique insight into the composition of the PSM workforce.

PSM Staff Diversity and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Strategies

DEI has become part of many PSM's DNA. 80% of PSM see Diversity, Equity and Inclusion as important to their organization. With growing awareness of the importance and added value of staff heterogeneity, PSM are making massive efforts to attract and retain diverse talent. As PSM operate in different contexts and have varying resources, strategies to tackle DEI differ greatly across organizations. 

This report offers a deep dive into the main strategies and looks at how PSM measure and track their efforts. The report also looks at the representation of the different dimensions of PSM staff.
