Nielsen is not just a TV ratings company anymore.  We have evolved into the leading media data technology company.  We help the biggest names out there, from Amazon, Google, and Sony to the hottest new contenders.  From Hollywood to Bollywood, Streaming to Broadcast, and Gaming to Sports, everything we do revolves around audience and content.


Therefore, counting everyone and ensuring that all voices are seen and heard in media are at the heart of who we are as a company. This year, we are launching an industry-defining new capability that measures diversity and inclusion in the content world. Does the content we view on television, movies, and streaming services reflect the growing diversity of our world? Are we featuring diverse talent on-screen and behind-the-camera, and are we avoiding stereotypical and problematic roles? What role does diversity on-screen and behind the camera play in driving tune-in, subscriptions, and engagement?
