bout the Creative Diversity Network

This module was designed by CDN and is delivered by our Trainers who completed the Doubling Disability Train the Trainer course.

CDN exists to enable the UK Broadcasting industry to increase diversity and inspire inclusion. We work with our members towards a broadcasting industry with equality at its core monitored through the world's first industry-wide data collection system, Diamond. Only 4.5% of those working off-screen in the UK television industry identify as disabled compared to 17% of working people in the UK which is why we run the Doubling Disability project, providing disability inclusion training to the industry. Join us in Doubling Disability by attending some of our training courses and keeping up to date with Diamond.
