Last year, a survey of the industry conducted by the Commercial Communications Council found that there is widespread understanding of the need for greater diversity in the industry, however there is a clear gap when it comes to formal policies and programmes within agencies. In response to these findings, the Comms Council Inclusiveness & Diversity Group set a goal that all member agencies have an Inclusiveness & Diversity Policy in place by the end of 2018.
