BBC 50:50 Project

For Lansons, our early involvement in the BBC’s 50:50 Project represents a further extension of our commitment to vital issues surrounding equality, diversity and inclusion.

The BBC 50:50 Project began with one news programme making a commitment to increasing the number of women it featured as contributors. It quickly gained momentum as a grassroots movement across the BBC, and more than 500 BBC programme teams, including News night and Question Time, are now signed up to monitor and take steps towards 50:50 representation of women and men contributors.

As a founding partner Lansons has used the project as a means of reflection, to celebrate what we’ve achieved and understand more about what we can do to attain equal representation in all the content we produce, whether that's gender, ethnicity, disability or age among others.

As part of our commitment to 50:50, we track both our events and content for fair representation. We care fiercely about our ability to connect with and contribute to the world around us, and to help our clients do the same. The project brings this ambition to life, because through the data we are able to distinctly see where change is needed.

Watch the film by students from the University of Westminster in collaboration with BBC 50:50 team and featuring Lansons’ Director and BBC 50:50 lead Jon Cronin (03:42).

“For 30 years, gender equality has been a cause that we have promoted and pushed very prominently, and we feel that’s something we want to continue doing into other issues around diversity and equality.
We’ve had a terrific response [internally]; people take it seriously because there are figures you can look at that tell you what’s actually happening. So we’re learning about ourselves. Ultimately we want everything to be as it should be 50-50."
