Creative Diversity Lead and Journalist at BBC

Nina is the BBC’s Creative Diversity Lead for the 50:50 Equality Project and News and is spearheading initiatives to support the Corporation’s aspiration that its on-air representation reflects society. 

She oversees the multi-award-winning 50:50 Project, which is currently the biggest collective action on increasing women’s representation in BBC content there’s ever been. 600 BBC teams from across News, Sport, Factual and Entertainment are signed up to the voluntary initiative that uses a self-monitoring data system to effect change. In addition, over 70 external organisations have partnered with 50:50 from across the media, academia as well as the legal and corporate sectors. 50:50 is expanding its methodology to disability and ethnicity.

Nina is also a journalist. She has returned to the BBC newsroom as a TV output editor and senior producer to help support critical news services during the coronavirus pandemic. She has worked in media her whole professional career including The Sunday Times and The Sunday Telegraph.
