ITVS Shares Our Progress on BIPOC Representation

Posted on July 6, 2020

ITVS is committing today to publish key data that we provide each fiscal year to our Board and made possible through the ongoing support of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. We’re proud of our record of representation—on our Board, on our staff, and among our ITVS-funded filmmakers—and strive to improve. A 2017 analysis by the Center for Media & Social Impact at American University found that the filmmakers, places, people, and topics in 10+ years of ITVS documentaries reflect the country we live in. Today, we’re sharing our BIPOC representation (for the fiscal year 2019) in solidarity with other media organizations.
