There is a clear moral, social and economic case for why equality and diversity matters. Knowing your community and responding to its diverse needs is at the heart of effective public service delivery.
Diversity in TV and the media is a top priority for us at Channel 4. A key part of our remit is to appeal to people whatever their culture, nationality, religious persuasion, physical and mental ability, sexual orientation, gender, race or age.
In 2015, Channel 4 set out a major commitment to leadership in diversity at every level of the organisation. The 360° Charter puts diversity at the heart of all decision making at Channel 4, across all activities on and off-screen, at every level and with all external partners and independent producers. It includes 30 significant activities worth £5m of investment and covers a wide definition of diversity including BAME, disability, LGBT, gender and social mobility.
