Diversity and Public Service Media

Incorporating Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) is essential to remain relevant to the audience. And awareness on the need for a more diverse staff at corporate level to support more inclusive content is spreading.

This first-ever MIS report on diversity drafts a panorama of the representation of diversity within European media, with a focus on race and ethnic diversity, sexual orientation and disability.

Discover the persisting underrepresentation of several communities and the prevalence of numerous stereotypes, contrasted by the rising demand for more diverse casts and authentic portrayals.

Get inspired by PSM initiatives and see how they are striving to increase diversity and inclusion both on-screen and at corporate level, to bring more diverse content to European citizens.

Do not forget to also check the recently-published Gender equality and PSM report, which forms an excellent complement to this report.
