Lagos – Nigeria’s number one lifestyle and entertainment channel, EbonyLife TV, is sponsoring a two-day Diversity Programme at MIPCOM, the annual global market for entertainment content, where the world’s most influential industry players gather to discover the latest programming and find new partners. MIPCOM takes place from 16-19 October in Cannes, France, while the Diversity Programme begins on the 17th.

The Programme will include the inaugural Diversity TV International Excellence Awards 2017, which is dedicated to championing and promoting diversity in all its forms across the international television industry. This is an issue that has been especially important to Mo Abudu, the CEO of EbonyLife TV, as the channel has forged ahead in creating powerful images of African women succeeding in business, politics and corporate life, while striving for equality in their personal lives.
