ITV is for everyone, regardless of their background, race, disability, sexuality, gender identity or expression. We know that diversity leads to greater creativity and better decision-making, so we’re committed to ensuring our workforce reflects the diverse make-up of modern Britain and creating an environment where everyone is comfortable being themselves at work.
- In 2019 we set out our D&I targets including a commitment to ensuring 8% of our workforce has a declared disability by 2022.
- We’re also committed to improving the representation of disability on screen. 10% of our on-screen contributors will be perceived disabled by 2022.
- ITV Able network group champions the disability agenda throughout the organisation, supported by our Group Chief Technology Officer at Board Level.
- ITV launched its Inclusion and Diversity Council in 2019. Chaired by our Chief Executive Carolyn McCall, the Council is made up of senior leaders across the business, including members who represent our various networks, including ITV Able.
- Our sign production house ITV Signpost, who employ at least 50% disabled crew on every production, have committed to running a new trainee scheme in 2020 with the British Sign Language Broadcasting Trust for Deaf film-makers and production talent who want to break into the industry.
- ITV is proud to be the one of only two broadcasters (the other being C4) to be accredited as Disability Confident Leader, in recognition of our continued commitment and work around removing barriers for disabled candidates.
ITV will continue to work to become the best and most inclusive place to work. It’s not one or the other. It’s both.
