Diversity and inclusivity
ScreenSkills supports current and future generations of talent to flourish in the screen industries. We are committed to embedding diversity in all its forms, including geographic representation, in the workforce we help to build. We, therefore, ask you to fill in a diversity monitoring form when you register with us.
We analyse the data, track the industry make-up over time and use our research to lobby government and industry. We also use this data to report to our funders on targets, and to inform decisions on which services we develop.
The Diversity, equity and inclusion for the screen industries e-learning module provides a basic introduction to diversity, equity and inclusion for working in the screen industries. We have also created the Work Well series, three e-learning modules designed to give everyone in the screen industries (film, television, animation, visual effects and games) tools to help create a better, more welcoming and inclusive place to work.
We have changed how we refer to minority ethnic audiences. As of July 25 2023 we no longer use the term Black, Asian and minority ethnic. We will align with Ofcom and use the term minority ethnic. We will update our website accordingly, though some content published before this date, such as news stories, may still reference the former.
