"The CDN diversity pledge is a great tool to help our industry embrace diversity. Broadcasters need to attract people with a broader range of backgrounds and attitudes, because a bigger talent pool helps realise our ultimate ambition: creating innovative world-class content for the digital age.
That's why diversity is a must-have attribute for production companies: because it is good for business and good for creativity."
OONA KING, Channel 4
"Sky is the choice of more than one in three homes across the UK, which means our customer base couldn't be much more diverse. It's crucial that our people and our partners reflect that. We are proud to support the CDN/PACT diversity pledge and to play our part in addressing this important issue. As an industry, we simply can't afford to narrow our view and miss out on great talent."
Sky's Chief Executive
"Diversity is very much a part of the culture at Turner as our business success depends on our services being popular with all sections of society.
Our strategy of 'Turner For All' aims to see that our workforce and services reflect the diversity of our audiences and this pledge will play a major part in that."
President of Turner Broadcasting

The CDN Diversity Pledge is an opportunity for producers and commissioners to work together to build diversity across the industry, and we support it wholeheartedly."
