Along with other major media organisations, ITV have unveiled their plan to improve BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) representation both on screen and among senior management. The words sound similar to what has been announced by other broadcasters, we’ll have to follow to see what actually transpires. Of particular interest to me was the announcement of a Cultural Advisory Council – a group of independent external advisers who will advise, challenge and counsel ITV on all of its inclusion and diversity activities. We’ll report back as soon as we find out the members of the council.
