European roundtable on diversity and inclusion in the audiovisual sector – Friday 2 June 2023, Paris, France – 10:00 to 15:30 CET


Join us on Friday 2 June 2023 in Paris (10:00 to 15:30) for a European conversation on diversity and inclusion in the audiovisual sector. REGISTER HERE

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 at inspiring future actions.

A first roundtable was held online on 7 February 2023 (a recording of the meeting is available here). 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 the February’s exchanges and taking them a step further. After an introduction to intersectionality, 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. See attached the draft agenda of the day.

The meeting will take place on Friday 2 June 2023 from 10:00 till 15:30 at the film school La Fémis (salle Jean Renoir, 6 Rue Francoeur, 75018 Paris).

Simultaneous interpretation in English and French will be available.
