Project DIAMOND will collect detailed diversity data, tracked over time and benchmarked within and between broadcasters, of all those involved both on-screen and off in making programmes commissioned by British broadcasters; finally answering the question “who’s on TV and who makes it?”.
– It’s taken British Broadcasting several years to develop, but it’s called Project DIAMOND.
Our broadcasting industry will be the first in the world to have hard data about which groups are locked inside the box.
It’ll show us which Broadcasters’ diversity policies work best. Once we know that, we can benchmark progress.
And that’s all I’m asking: let’s make some serious progress.’
