Making Access Happen
Children in all their diversity are well represented on screen, in books and on radio but what happens behind the scenes? Are the people who make content just as representative? With diversity as the theme for CMC 2016 and now a focus for employers, we look at who is getting in, how they are getting in and how they are getting on.
