Today Ofcom have published their report on diversity in radio, which seeks to give a comprehensive picture of the radio workforce – for both BBC and commercial radio. This report investigates what broadcasters are doing to promote equality and diversity within their organisations to ensure radio broadcasting truly reflects the breadth of modern society within the UK.
Bauer welcomes Ofcom’s work around diversity and equal opportunities and is fully committed to meeting the challenges it sets to deliver further diversity and inclusion within our radio business.
Whilst we have a number of existing initiatives across our organisation we recognise there is more we can do to increase our diversity and will engage our people, Ofcom and the Radiocentre to achieve industry leading targets.
