ITVS Shares Our Progress on Representation

Posted on February 7, 2023

As an organization with diversity and inclusivity as our top priority, ITVS has a long record of sharing with the public the data that we provide each fiscal year to our board of directors. We’re proud of our record of representation—on our board, on our staff, and among our ITVS-funded filmmakers and programs—and we continuously strive to improve our approach to measurement and evaluation. For example, we recognize that applying an intersectional lens to our representation analysis is essential to understanding how complex identities influence the structures, processes, and practices underpinning our social justice and equity work. 

Today, we’re sharing our representation (for the fiscal year 2022, below) in solidarity with Beyond Inclusion and Public Media for All. Over time, we aim to expand our annual intersectionality reporting and provide our insights on the outcomes of our evolving DEIB framework.
