The BBC values have diversity at the core - from audiences that we represent, to on-screen talent and of course, our staff. When looking specifically at diversity in R&D, we’re taking extra steps related to our engagement with the wider tech industry in order to move the dial. As we know, the technology sector traditionally (and currently) does not have great gender representation; women are significantly under-represented, so we’re starting there. We are committed to improving the gender disparity within BBC R&D and by doing so, influence the industry around us.
