Amazon MGM Studios has scrapped the role of head of diversity and inclusion for the UK and Europe, with incumbent Miranda Wayland leaving the company.

The former BBC head of creative diversity joined Amazon to take up the role at its Prime Video business two years ago, but the role has been rested following a European restructure.

Rather than have a dedicated diversity head, the streamer will require all of its teams define and set their diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility priorities at local level.

Wayland helped to develop Amazon’s £10m talent initiative Prime Video Pathway, which aimed to improve access to TV and film jobs in the UK.

She is also a key figure in the multi-partner TV Access Project and steered Amazon’s collaboration with the BBC, ITV, Sky and Fremantle to establish the TV Collective’s Breakthrough Leadership programme.
