ITV leadership programme for Deaf, Disabled and neurodivergent colleagues begins this month
ITV today confirmed the 11 high potential colleagues who have been selected for its senior leadership programme, Amplify, which this year focuses on supercharging the leadership potential of outstanding Deaf, Disabled and neurodivergent colleagues.
Joining the programme which begins this month, the selected colleagues will benefit from bespoke coaching sessions, leadership sessions and panel discussions with top industry speakers.
As with the inaugural year, each participant on the programme will be matched with a Sponsor from the Management Board as well as become a Sponsor themselves to a new entrant joining ITV.
This unique, tailored programme will be held over 6 full days across 8 months and participants will also be given individual coaching sessions across the period. The programme is being led by ITV Creative Diversity Partners, Nahrein Kemp and Sam Tatlow MBE and is being facilitated by leading Executive Coach Sarah Pickthall.
The selected colleagues (names below) come from a wide range of different areas across ITV including commissioning, production, news, commercial, marketing, technology and streaming.
Amplify is one of ITV’s targeted initiatives to address retention and promote talent progression, with a view to improving diverse representation at senior level across our business.
Participants from the 2022 Amplify programme include Sonny Hanley, who has been promoted from his role as Controller, Content Services to become the Director of ITV Academy, Enita Kang, Head of Enterprise and Risk and now Chief of Staff in the CEO Office, and Priya Singh (formerly Business Director, Content Supply Programme) who has recently been promoted to Director of Operations, Commissioning and Content, reporting to Media and Entertainment Chief Operating Officer Sarah Clarke.
