Why does it matter?
Public service media’s founding purpose is to serve all members of society, including the most marginalized.
This means the concept of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is a moral and strategic imperative for the EBU and its Members—it’s embedded in our core values and mission.
Not only is it morally right to mainstream DEI in our behaviours, policies, and outputs, but it also makes sense from a business perspective.
Research consistently shows that diverse, equitable, inclusive workplaces are more creative, productive, and happier.
What are we doing about it?
Since 2020, we have implemented numerous DEI commitments and policies, established a DEI Steering Group, and created a DEI Officer role with the authority and means to deliver.
