BBC Promises Women Will Fill Half Of Its On-Air Roles By 2020 | TV News
Our society is becoming increasingly more and more diverse with each passing decade, and our television is finally catching up with that fact in the shows aimed at those demographics and with the opportunities available for those actors.
The BBC has pledged that women will make up half the people who appear on its TV and radio stations by 2020, including making half of its 21,000-strong workforce and leadership. As it stands at the moment, 48.4% of their staff are women, making up 41.3% of senior management roles.
The BBC went into more depth of the diversity measures, promising that 15% of staff would come from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic backgrounds, taking on the same proportion in on-air and leading roles, while disabled people will make up 8% of the previous alongside LGBT people.
