In this session...

This session will explore the ongoing issue of a lack of diversity in casting. Following an anonymised industry wide survey, the panel will explore real-world examples. What can we learn from these as we look to forge a different path forward?

Creative agency Havas London partnered with diversity, inclusion and equality organisation Creative Equals to launch Press Pause – an anti-discrimination initiative that provides a robust, formal framework through which employees can challenge problematic views and behaviours. And the duo has now open sourced practical guidelines to support an industry-wide change.

Diversity cannot exist in your business or the industry if voices are not respected, valued and heard. Join us to see how to be a part of the change we all want to see. View Less
