Online Unconscious Bias Training Workshop

SPI Event
29 September 2020

SPI is pleased to announce that, after our successful Unconscious bias training last year, we are teaming up with RTÉ again to hold an ONLINE unconscious bias training workshop.

We still have 5 places available!

The workshop will take place on Tuesday 29th September, online, from 1pm to 5:30pm, with breaks.

The issue of diversity on and off screen is now a prominent element of our industry, and Section 481 include a requirement for all qualifying productions to have gender equality, diversity and inclusion skills development initiatives.

The unconscious bias training workshop will investigate the need to understand the impacts of bias and how to take action to mitigate the potential negative effects of bias within production crews who produce TV & Film in Ireland.

Issues to be discussed in the workshop include:

  • working practices
  • on-screen and off-screen representation.
  • commissioning processes
  • audience reach/ viewing figures

The workshop will be delivered by: Jess Hayden, MSc / Lucy McKenna, MA

If you would like to attend, please email anthony@screenproducersireland.com and let us know who from your company will attend.
