creative diversity lead BBC

Nina Goswami is the BBC’s Creative Diversity Lead and is spearheading initiatives to support the Corporation’s aspiration that its on-air representation reflects society. Part of her role is managing the multi-award-winning 50:50 Project, which is currently the biggest collective action on increasing women’s representation in BBC content there’s ever been. More than 550 BBC teams from across News, Sport, Factual and Entertainment are signed up to the voluntary initiative that uses a self-monitoring data system to effect change. In addition, over 50 external organisations have partnered with 50:50 including ABC News, Voice of America and Fortune. 50:50 is expanding its methodology to disability and ethnicity – an initiative Nina is leading.

Nina is also a journalist and, before her current post, was a BBC News senior producer. She has worked in media her whole professional career including The Sunday Times and The Sunday Telegraph.
