Sounds positive. Out of curiosity - what sector/industry?
TV production & sales/admin - the actual boots on the ground production teams seem relatively diverse from what I've seen (though there is a lot of "who you know..." there too) but the business management side is really not.
There's a lot of the more subtle/institutional white privilege stuff eg senior people's children/family friends getting junior opportunities, generally "known" people getting into roles that may not have been widely advertised externally etc... I think the industry in general is a kind of one of those clubs where once you're in you're in but that step of getting in has some considerable hurdles. I think this is what the long term projects for our group are trying to tackle.
Even outside of race (possibly for a different thread) the northern/southern or middle/working class backgrounds balance isn't really there.
