Creative Skillset is passionate about promoting diversity, which remains a key focus within the Creative Industries.

Certain groups are still under-represented within the workforce, as highlighted in our research. For the Creative Industries to prosper and provide products that appeal to a wide range of audiences and consumers, we need a diverse workforce and the diverse range of skills that brings.

It is also a key focus of Creative Skillset's work and is woven into all our projects and funding.  More information on our work in High End TV Drama can be found at High End TV Diversity.

On Hiive, the professional network for creative people, there is an area (known as a swarm) related to diverse drama talent. This is designed for talent from under represented groups who work in the scripted genres. It is a platform for talent to showcase their work and connect with other creatives. It is also a place where drama and other producers from the scripted genres can post jobs and find talent for their productions.

See example below.
