Watch our Diversity in Action 2019 Conference

ScreenSkills' half-day conference, Diversity in Action, was hosted in March 2019 and designed to provide practical information and hands-on workshops to improve diversity and inclusion in television and film. During the first half of the event, ScreenSkills' heads of departments gave an overview of the diversity initiatives we support in high-end TV and film. This was followed by bite-sized training sessions and workshops - you can watch video recordings of several of these sessions on this page or on our YouTube channel.
