Disability in the workplace

The request was partially successful.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

I would like to know:

1 - How many journalists are employed across your organisation?
2 - Of that number, how many have a registered disability?
3 - Of the number of candidates for any given role, how many times has a disabled journalist been shortlisted?
4 - As above, but how many have been accepted?
5 - How many of those candidates are BAME candidates?
6 - When a disabled journalist applies for a role, what kind of adjustments are made to typical "gold standard " entry requirements in order to reflect this? (E.g. digital prowess in place of shorthand)
7 - How many journalists employed by the BBC have benefited from adaptations/reasonable adjustments in order to help them succeed in the workplace?

Thank you very much for your time.

Yours faithfully,

April Ryan
