Gender and Inclusion:  Seeking Solutions

Saturday, March 9th at 9:30 am
VIFF's Vancity Theatre 1181 Seymour Street, Vancouver BC   

Change needs to occur on-screen and behind the camera for women working in our industry. The challenge is one of making conscious decisions to break down systemic barriers to achieve workplaces that are diverse, equitable and inclusive. 

This challenge is explored in a half-day forum featuring a presentation from Dr. Amanda Coles whose research examines labour markets in the cultural economy with a focus on public policy, collective representation and gender. 

The forum will also report on the Canadian funding model with updates from major funding agencies and include a moderated discussion with WIFTV’s Advocacy Committee Chairs Sharon McGowan and Susan Brinton and representatives from other industry organizations working for change.

The forum is followed by a special presentation with the DGC - a screening of This Changes Everything and a panel discussion moderated by Dr. Amanda Coles (Arts and Cultural Management and Employment Relations, Deakin University) with special guests Tom Donahue (director, This Changes Everything) and others to be announced.

This is a free event but registration is required. Register here
