BBC Studios has appointed a new Diversity Lead, Miranda Wayland.

Wayland’s brief is to ensure that BBC Studios’ people and programmes properly reflect and represent the UK.

The post is a new one. Previously BBC Studios shared a Diversity Lead with BBC Television.

Wayland joins BBC Studios from ITV, where she helped define their diversity strategy.

Wayland will report directly to Tunde Ogungbesan, the BBC’s Head of Diversity and Inclusion, and will work closely with BBC Studios’ Chief Operating Officer, Anna Mallett and HR Director, Jabbar Sardar.

Tunde Ogungbesan said: "Miranda is well known in the industry for her exemplary work and I am so pleased that she is joining BBC Studios, to help ensure we’re attracting the broadest range of talented people and enabling all of our employees to thrive and achieve their full potential."

Miranda Wayland says: "I’m really excited to be joining BBC Studios at this significant time, as it launches commercially. I’m looking forward to working with the team to build on their existing diversity strategy and activity to ensure even better representation both on and off screen."

She joins BBC Studios in the middle of April
