All Party Parliamentary Group Creative Diversity

The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Creative Diversity was formed in May 2019 by Ed Vaizey MP (now Lord Vaizey) with the support of Alex Pleasants, formerly Ed Vaizey’s senior policy adviser, and Joanna Abeyie MBE, leading diversity consultant and CEO of Blue Moon.

Its aim is to engage with industry and government to identify and tackle obstacles to equality, diversity and inclusion in the creative sector. Baroness Deborah Bull and Chi Onwurah MP are now co-chairs, giving the group prominent voices in both the House of Commons and the House of Lords. The group’s vice-chairs and officers bring a further wealth of both political and industry experience and include Baroness Floella Benjamin, Baroness Jane Bonham-Carter, Lord Ed Vaizey and Rupa Huq MP. Alex Pleasants and Joanna Abeyie MBE provide the secretariat for the group.
