The Value of Creating a Psychologically Safe Workplace
Thursday, May 4, 2023
11:45 AM - 12:45 PM (AEST)
Event Centre - Southport 3
Join us as we explore the challenges and opportunities that come with creating mentally healthy and psychologically safe screen workplaces.
In this session, Ben Steel and Jonathon Dutton, plus special guests, will outline some of the key issues affecting the mental health and wellbeing of our industry. They will draw on key findings from industry reports, Screen Well’s work/life balance survey results, as well as new research by Venn and Screen Well that has examined the impacts of leadership and culture on wellbeing and creativity in the industry. How we can flip the script and turn these issues into opportunities without creating more pressure on producer’s time and production resources (namely, the budget and the schedule)?
Producers are already under a lot of pressure, so this is an opportunity to acknowledge, reflect, and put in place a plan to not only support cast and crews, but ourselves.
SCREEN FOREVER is proudly supported by the Queensland Government, through Screen Queensland.
Screen Producers Australia respectfully acknowledges the people of the Yugambeh language region, the traditional owners of the lands on which we met. We thank the traditional custodians for welcoming us all onto their lands.
We acknowledge and pay respects to them and all their descendants both past and present. We also acknowledge the many Aboriginal people from other regions as well as Torres Strait and South Sea Islander people who now live in the local area and have made an important contribution to the community.
