1) Abstract

The committee for diversity was created in 2009 by France Television, the French public television network. This is their first report, and it is organized around three main themes: structure (recruitment), visibility (on screen) and content. The report first analyses the past 10 years in terms of diversity, then analyses current procedures and context around the three themes identified, and finally gives recommendations for a better, more diverse public television, around the three themes.
