The SVG Podcast

Nov 6, 2019

We broach a very important topic on this episode of The SVG Podcast: diversity in sports production. Progress has been made in front of the camera in this regard, but when it comes to behind the scenes, its been slower to progress.

We have a special roundtable conversation for you to address this issue on the show today. We’re joined by Bob Clarke, the founder and chief executive of MAMA Youth Project, Inga Ruehl, a director for Sky Production Services, and Ekta Hutton, Acting Head of the HBS Broadcast Academy to share practical steps that broadcasters can take in order to promote equal opportunities, diversity and inclusion in their work places.

This talk took place at SVG Europe’s Sport Production Summit, which was held on September 12 at the DeLaMar Theater in Amsterdam. Your moderator is Heather McLean, Editor, SVG Europe.
