Reflecting Society: The State of Diverse Representation in Media and Entertainment

Media and entertainment have the power to shape our perspectives through content that shows us the lived experiences of others across races, gender identities and expressions, abilities and ages, among other identity attributes.

This report, in collaboration with Accenture, features for the first time a compilation of the state of diversity and representation in the media, entertainment and sport industries. It assesses the state of diversity across content and creative production in five key sectors: gaming, TV and film, news and publishing, advertising and sport and sport media, and presents conclusions on where new focus is needed.
