Diversity and Inclusion

STV is committed to building an inclusive culture and has a strategy in place to ensure we represent the communities we serve both on and off screen, and to create an inclusive culture that ensures equality of opportunity for all. 

Our activities in this area are focused on our Open Access Charter which has been in place since 2018, and captures the commitments we have identified to improve diversity and inclusion for three main groups - our people, our audiences and our partners

Further to this, STV recently confirmed a renewed commitment to using our privileged position as an employer, public service broadcaster and producer to address the longstanding and systemic issue of racism and improve the representation of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic people both on and off screen.
