I am really proud to be working with the TV collective and their #itooammedia campaign. It is vital to look at diversity within the TV industry, to look at how people are treated, to address this and make positive change. Media should have a hugely diverse staff base, reflecting the diverse population of the UK.
Following on from the Harvard and Oxford campaigns we asked people of colour to tell us some of the things that had been said to them whilst working on production. These ranged from the ignorant to the downright racist. This video has been featured on the recent “diversity in TV” debate led by Lenny Henry and has been mentioned in numerous newspapers. Please check out the great work that the TV collective do and get involved,
