The U.S. is becoming more diverse every year, but is television programming keeping pace with the changing demographics of America? As part of Nielsen’s commitment to social justice, we will be releasing a report on the state of representation and inclusion in the television industry. During this session, Ronjan Sikdar, Nielsen SVP of Product & Technology, Media Analytics, will share an early look at Asian representation on broadcast, cable and streaming programs. With these inclusion metrics, you’ll be able to understand how investments in diverse casting and content can lead to better outcomes for audience growth, advertiser reach, and increased visibility of underrepresented groups in media.
Ronjan Sikdar leads Product & Technology within Media Analytics at Nielsen, which develops and deploys analytics solutions to help clients in the media ecosystem make better decisions in today’s fragmented, multi-screen world. Prior to this role, Ronjan spent 9 years in various roles in Nielsen’s digital business, helping clients from the packaged goods world and the media world understand the emerging, innovative, and disruptive digital space.
