The CIF is ‘the membership body that represents, champions and supports the UK’s creative industries.’ That sounds good.
‘Through our unique network of member organisations, our influential policy and advocacy work and our UK-wide events programme we bring together the many sectors that comprise our world-leading creative industries.’
That sounds good, too. But why is it a no-go area for male executives.
Here’s the team sheet:
Chief Executive – FEMALE
Director of Policy and Programmes – FEMALE
Director of Communications and Marketing – FEMALE
Community Membership Manager – FEMALE
Communications and Content Manager – FEMALE
Policy Insights Manager – FEMALE
Strategic Partnerships Manager – FEMALE
Head of Events – FEMALE
Creative Careers Manager – FEMALE
Deputy Head of Education & Skills – FEMALE
Membership Officer – FEMALE
Office Manager – FEMALE
Events Manager – FEMALE
Head of Creative Careers – FEMALE
Policy and Public Affairs Manager – MALE
That’s 1 male out of 15.
Looks pretty equal to us.
Number 3 on the team is former head of media at English National Opera.
