Benchmarking Diversity and Inclusion in Media and Entertainment: The Audience Representation Index

March 8, 2022

Benchmarking Diversity and Inclusion
Stories help us learn, dream and build common
understanding within and across cultures. Media and
entertainment companies are our modern storytellers,
creating and distributing shared experiences that can
bring us together. We, the audience, judge progress
– whether we see ourselves portrayed and how,
and whether companies are creating communities
and leading conversations. To help media and
entertainment leaders to understand where the gaps
in representation exist today and what the stakes are,
the World Economic Forum is proud to share a firstof-its-kind cross-media sector index that measures
audience perceptions of representation.
