Our Partners

Amplifying the impact of the 50:50 Project with our global network of partners

The 50:50 Project has expanded beyond the BBC through a global network of partner organisations that are implementing the 50:50 methodology. The number of partners has grown to over 80 organisations in 24 countries – and we want to go much further. Our current network includes partners in public and private media; academia; conference businesses; law; public relations and the corporate world.

How do our partnerships work?

50:50 is a simple system to effect long-lasting change on a large scale, with no compromise on quality. We share our detailed methodology and best practice to inspire other organisations to fully represent their audiences.

To do this we stick to the core principles that helped embed 50:50 tracking and culture change at the BBC. For instance, we know that data has the best chance of influencing behaviour if people are exposed to it every day. We also know that no single approach to fair representation is going to work for everyone, so we’ve created a system that is simple and adaptable.

We tailor 50:50 to each partner’s content and workflows, focused on tracking what teams can control. We work closely with each partner organisation to create a small pilot group of teams to test out the 50:50 system. Then, once successful monitoring is in place, we support the partner to scale it up further across their organisation.
