Who's leaving ?

Perhaps unsurprisingly, a shrinking BBC ain't great for diversity. A response to a Freedom of Information enquiry shows that, as at 31 December, 12% of staff were classified as Black/Minority Ethnic, yet the proportion of BME staff who left the organisation over the year stood at 13%.

47% of staff were female at the end of the year, yet they accounted for 55% of leavers.

If the headcount figures are right - 18,397 at the end of December, 19,635 at the end of March - the BBC has cut numbers by 6% in nine months.
