Navigating the Complexities of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Reflections on a Global Movement

The 25th May saw the 4-year anniversary of the murder of George Floyd. This sparked a real push for equality and inclusion in all spaces. A chance for us to come together as a global community and create something new and beautiful from the soil of so much hurt and struggle. 

Now, there seems to be a struggle to identify DEI as even a positive. With the reprehensible treatment of Diane Abbott by her own political party, Trump’s guilty verdict and the ongoing situation in Gaza, it’s tough to see if we’re still moving forward. I find myself thinking about whether I’m lost in the woods for seeing trees, or if the backlash against using diversity and inclusion as motivating words is actually real. Social media would have you believe it’s a dirty word, but I’m always hopeful. 

The TV Collective, has always been about equity and inclusion, it’s the reason I founded it, and created The Breakthrough Leaders Programme. There is always a need to create community wherever you are, and I noticed that so many of us in the creative landscape felt like we were the only ones in the office, never knowing if we’d ever see anyone like us in the rooms we worked in. 

Our Spring Social is a vindicating testament to the power of our community, to see so many of us under one roof being our best, joyful and free selves in a truly safe space where everyone is welcome. 

I would like to hear from you in our community on the ‘DEI crash’ as they’re putting it on Twitter. Do you think the diversity bubble has burst, with so many positions announced as closing or downsized? Or is this simply another transition as inclusion has become more standardised?
