SPI Diversity Event

SPI Event
20 June 2019

SPI is holding a half day Diversity Event to discuss the issues of diversity in our industry and approaches that have been taken in other countries to support production companies as they introduce diversity policies and initiatives. The event will also address the legal and regulatory obligations with which production companies must comply.

Anjani Patel, who is head of Diversity of PACT UK, will talk about how PACT UK introduced diversity policies and initiatives to support their member production companies and the wider UK industry, and the benefits that came from that.

Andrea Martin, from Media Lawyers, will present on the current diversity requirements of the Audio Visual Media Services Directive (as reflected in the Broadcasting Act 2009) and Broadcasting Authority of Ireland policy documents.
 
There will be a Q&A session following both presentations.
