Session details

Is Diversity For Hire?

We bring noise, confident opinions, lived experience, and even some unexpected humour to a loaded question: "Is Diversity for Hire?" Be it in writers' rooms, on set, or within screen organisations, our panelists will share their thoughts and experiences as 'diversity hires'. What does it feel like to be hired to simply 'tick a box'? Is it possible to accept a 'diversity hire' role and still turn it into an opportunity? What are the warning signs you've been 'diversity hired' and what to do next? We'll explore it all in a candid conversation that's supposed to end after 45 minutes. But good luck getting the mic back off us, Screen Forever... we've got a lot to say.
