NBCUniversal has announced that in an effort to increase diversity and inclusion in its workforce, it is starting the "Fifty Percent Challenge Initiative". The initiative, which was sent out in a memo to employees at NBCUniversal News Group, calls to have a workforce made up of 50 percent people of colour and 50 percent women but the network has not included a timeline.

"We want to increase diversity and inclusion both in front of and behind the camera, and earn the trust of every community in America that relies on us for exceptional journalism,” so Cesar Conde, chairman of the NBCUniversal News Group.
