Gender equality, equal pay, ethnic diversity, and inclusion are hot topics in the media right now. But is it all just PR hype? Do companies really value the impact of diversity or is it a cynical concession to appease the voice of the equality debate and tick the right boxes? A report by Deloitte shows that when employees think their organisation is committed to and supportive of diversity, and they feel included, their ability to innovate increases by 83%. But is there any real proof that the media and entertainment technology industry cares about driving a diversity agenda? For an industry dependent on innovation, facts such as the above should be a good enough and logical reason. But progress is slow. The white, male dominance of the TV and broadcast technology space is undeniable. On this NAB panel, the benefits for companies who embrace diversity and foster inclusion will be debated, and what is practically being done to accelerate the pace of equality will be discussed.
