The Creative Diversity Network‘s role is to share, discuss and profile the work that the UK broadcasters are doing around the diversity agenda, both independently and collectively. Its members and stakeholders include BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Sky, Viacom, S4C, BAFTA, Screenskills, Pact. and ITN.
The Creative Diversity Network also manages Diamond, a single online system used by the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 and Sky to obtain consistent diversity data on programmes they commission. Diamond collects data about the gender; gender identity; age; ethnicity; sexual orientation and disability of people working on- or off-screen on all UK-originated productions. Diamond is a unique project, to the best of our knowledge, no other broadcasting industry in the world has developed a cross-industry approach where competing broadcasters collect and publish diversity data together.
In 2017-18 Disability Arts Online was hired by Creative Diversity Network to help shape their messaging, website materials and content guidelines.
