Westminster Media Forum

Next steps for improving diversity and inclusion in the UK screen sector

December 2018

This seminar examined latest developments in improving inclusion and diversity in the UK screen sector, both on- and off-screen.

Attendees assessed progress made by broadcasters around monitoring, targets, and top-down diversity policies - and what further regulatory and policy steps might be needed to increase diversity across wider demographics, leadership and the freelance workforce.

Delegates considered issues around increasing accountability and diversity in leadership positions, as well as how the industry can develop a more collaborative approach to inclusion and equal opportunities.

Those attending looked at the potential to help develop best practice in the industry around progression, talent retention and developing diversity in decision-making.

Further sessions considered the latest approaches for overcoming barriers to entry and supporting the next generation of talent so that they can develop their skills and employability - as well as new approaches to widening the talent pool.

Shortly after every Westminster Media Forum seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
