APA members have embraced the industry-wide efforts to improve underrepresentation in their hirings. Any form of discrimination, including positive discrimination, is illegal, and the route to improving diversity is to recruit from different places than we have in the past. Some of you have found diverse recruitment easier for junior roles than senior ones and are keen to address that.
Therefore, we are hosting a Recruiting Diverse Talent event on Wednesday 18th May from 6-9 pm. You will have the opportunity not only to meet with talent but also to hear from our partners such as The Kusp, Iconic Steps, Edit Collective, Access VFX, Girls In Film, LSA (and more) to see how they can help you with your recruitment diversity goals.
Come along and understand the resources available to you for future hires and make connections with talent and organisations that will help you.
Our member; Framestore (28 Chancery Ln, London WC2A 1LB) have very kindly offered to host us for some drinks, nibbles and networking.
To attend, please send an email to [email protected] indicating whether you are a talent, APA member or an organisation.
