Thematic Champion

Lord Tony Hall

The BBC is absolutely committed to gender equality. While we are performing better than many other organisations we have more work to do to deliver further change. We look forward to working with others on this important UN initiative - one that will help accelerate progress across the globe.

Thematic Commitment

By 2020, the BBC will have 50% of women in the workforce and 50% in leadership roles; 50% of women on screen, on-air and in lead roles; and we will have closed the gender pay gap.
