Commissioning Diversity Guidelines

The Commissioning Diversity Guidelines ensure every new Channel 4-commissioned programme in every genre contributes to increasing diverse talent participation on and off screen.

The objective is to bring transparency and accountability to the numbers of people from diverse backgrounds employed in the TV industry. 

From 1st August 2022, any greenlit projects should follow the updated guidelines
