You’re invited to the launch of the Screenwest Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Action Plan, the new Diversity Fund and the WA launch of the national Screen Diversity and Inclusion Network (SDIN) Members of diverse groups, the screen industry, and the wider community, are invited to join us for this special launch and networking event. You’ll have the opportunity to hear about the Action Plan, Diversity Fund and SDIN, and enjoy art and screen content from a diverse range of creators from around Western Australia. The Screenwest Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Action Plan is a year-long plan developed to contribute to the goals of the recently released WA Screen Industry Diversity and Inclusion Roadmap. The Action Plan specifies activities to be carried out by Screenwest in 2017-18. A key component of the Action Plan is the new Screenwest Diversity Fund. This Fund will provide funding to production companies, organisations and individuals to overcome barriers preventing Western Australian community members from underrepresented groups from participating in professional screen industry activities. Screenwest recognises diversity as differences in gender; age; Aboriginal identity; cultural and linguistic diversity (CaLD); disability; sexuality and gender identities, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex (LGBTQI+); location and socio-economic status. Joining us at the launch will be representatives from around Australia to talk about the national Screen Diversity and Inclusion Network. The SDIN is a network of broadcasters, screen funding agencies, business associations, guilds and industry-aligned education and training organisations who have committed to work together towards a more inclusive and diverse screen industry.
