European roundtable on diversity and inclusion in the audiovisual sector
Join us in Paris for a European conversation on diversity and inclusion in the audiovisual sector. The event is organised by the European social partners*, sector organisations representing workers (cast and crew, as well as journalists) and employers (commercial and public broadcasters, producers) in the context of a project which aims at improving the capacity of the industry to implement diversity policies. The roundtables look at clarifying concepts, sharing practices and experiences, and inspiring future actions.
A first roundtable was held online on 7 February 2023 (watch the recording). It aimed at a better understanding of diversity – what we mean when we speak of diversity and inclusion in the audiovisual sector.
The second roundtable will continue this conversation, building on February’s exchanges and taking them a step further. The focus will be on the building blocks of a diversity and inclusion strategy, as well as on opening pathways to the sector.
We will have the chance to have with us professionals and experts from different European countries. Speakers who have already confirmed their presence:
- Alexandra Borchardt, independent researcher, journalist, and consultant
- Marine Schenfele, CSR Director at CANAL+ Group
- Nathalie Coste-Cerdan, Director General of La Fémis
- An Dezeure, Head of VRT JOBS (Recruitment, Talent Scouting, Internships)
The draft agenda of the day with the full line-up of speakers will be available soon.
The meeting will take place on Friday 2 June 2023 from 10:00 to 15:30 at the film school La Fémis (salle Jean Renoir, 6 Rue Francoeur, 75018 Paris).
