As part of our mission to take joint responsibility for action on diversity, our CEO group met in March to approve a new model for the CDN going forwards, soon to roll out over 2013 and 2014. Industry Working Groups have been appointed in the specific areas of Commissioning, Production and News and will be chaired and led by senior leaders to be announced here.
Restructuring the CDN enables us to draw on the expertise of those industry leaders who can drive change and create real engagement on diversity. Our Steering Group will ensure that the groups are aligned to CDN strategy and report back to our Chief Executives.
Representatives from the Steering Group will also attend relevant Industry Working Groups to report progress and act as a channel of communication for effective cross-group working. Our Industry Working Groups will focus on agreed key priorities and projects which will also be featured here.
