Amanda Ariss, CDN, Creative Diversity Network

The Creative Diversity Network (CDN) has announced the launch of Diamond, a world-leading monitoring system designed to promote diversity in TV.

Diamond marks the first time accurate, industry-wide data has been gathered to monitor diversity, both on- and off-screen.

CDN’s Executive Director Amanda Ariss told the RTS that “Diversity has been an issue... for a while. We know that there is still a lot to do. […] It’s a real first that organisations who are main competitors [in television] have agreed to monitor diversity on a consistent basis and to publish the results.
