Gender balance policy
It’s a self imposed policy within the production of the programme Tonight with Vincent Brown to have gender balance on programmes
Aims and objectives
- To have a policy for diversity in the economics and politics discussions on TV and ensure that women are represented correctly and equally to men.
Results and impact
The policy has been getting the issue on the agenda, this means that it becomes more noticeable to the audience that an all male panel is not representative. Now there is at least one woman on every panel, but that is not yet optimal. The policy has led to better gender balance in the politics series, but it has not generated change in the organisation.
