The motion picture and television industry is in social and cultural transformation, driven in part by equity, diversity, and inclusion. The process is taking place on-screen, as well as in front and behind the camera. It is being shaped by industry professionals, casts, crews, studios, and customers calling for sustained actions to address and prevent, intersectional forms of racism, discrimination, and exclusion. These calls to action require the industry to mobilize innovative and nuanced strategies to remove existing barriers and prevent acts of exclusion that continue to negatively impact industry professionals from underrepresented communities, including Indigenous, Black, South Asian, Asian, racialized, 2SLGBTQ+, and people with disabilities communities.
For the reasons stated above, Tomee Sojourner Consulting Inc., in partnership with Sojourner Innovation and Learning Lab, has designed a 90-minute learning session, Reframing Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression: An Introduction for Film and Television Professionals. Using an intersectional anti-racism and anti-oppression lens, this session moves participants through a series of historical and present-day vignettes of racism, discrimination and exclusion in the film and tv industry, from above and below the line. After the vignettes, participants are provided with some practical insights and strategies to build anti-racism and anti-oppression into their work practices.
1) Identify intersectional forms of racism, discrimination and exclusion taking place in the film and tv industry
2) Begin to develop insights and strategies to build anti-racism and anti-oppression into their work practices
3) Think critically about professional responsibilities and accountability
Expected Outcomes: Participants will leave with a greater understanding of racism, discrimination and exclusion in the film and tv industry and some practical anti-racism and anti-oppression strategies to apply in their work environments.|
