Executive Director Amanda Ariss to leave CDN

The Creative Diversity Network (CDN) has today announced that Executive Director Amanda Ariss has decided to leave the organisation following the successful launch of CDN’s groundbreaking Diamond diversity monitoring scheme.

John McVay, Chair of the Creative Diversity Network and Chief Executive of Pact said: “Amanda has accomplished a huge amount in establishing CDN as a permanent organisation and at the same time successfully launching Diamond, which will be a game-changer in increasing diversity in the TV industry. I’d like to thank her for her tremendous achievements and wish her well for the future. We’ve already begun work to recruit a high-calibre successor to maintain the development of Diamond and deliver some of the other diversity initiatives we plan to launch in the next few months.”

Amanda Ariss, Executive Director of the Creative Diversity Network added: “After more than 30 years of working full time, I’m planning to make some big changes in my lifestyle, including moving out of London and no longer working full time. Now that we have successfully launched Diamond, this feels like the right time to make this move. I’d like to thank the team at CDN and our partners for all their support and efforts helping us launch Diamond which I’m sure will be a huge success.”

Amanda Ariss will be leaving CDN in mid-October and the organisation has already started the recruitment process for her successor.
