Former BBC diversity lead Elonka Soros has joined Creative Access to help drive the social enterprise’s support for employers to become more inclusive.
Soros joins in the new role of development director, working with Creative Access chief executive and founder Josie Dobrin to spot new trends in diversity, inclusion, employment and talent.
She will provide consultancy to Creative Access’ employer partners, which include the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Disney and Netflix plus producers such as Sid Gentle Films, Big Talk, Fulwell 73, The Garden and Aardman.
Soros became the BBC's creative diversity lead in 2015 and worked with Creative Access on diversity action plans and training sessions. She was instrumental in driving inclusion at the corporation in an earlier role as special advisor to then-director general Tony Hall.
She hailed Creative Access’ success in “shifting the dial” on inclusion in the creative industries.
