BBC Trust reply to my open letter (blog 20th April 2012)

Reply received on 2nd May 2012 --

I am responding on behalf of the Trust to your further correspondence with us on the topic of recruiting the next Director-General.

The BBC is indeed committed to the furtherance of equality and diversity. The Corporation’s strategy in this area, as well as the most recent progress report can be found on the BBC website here:

The Trust has particular responsibilities in the area of diversity and in line with our commitment to openness and transparency, we have published our work in this area at the following link:

The BBC’s diversity strategy has been agreed at all levels of the organisation, and I am sure will be embraced as much by the next Director-General as it is by the current one. You will note Mark Thompson’s personal endorsement of the strategy in the documents at the first link above.

Thank you for taking an active interest in this issue.
