The following pledges outline BAFTA’s aims for 2011/2012.
We aim to ensure that our applications reflect the diversity of the local population. We provide opportunities for flexible working whenever possible. We run an internship scheme offering work-based training and encourage entrants from diverse backgrounds.
We will begin a comprehensive monitoring of the composition of our committees and membership to help us assess whether these groups reflect the industries we represent.
Learning and Events
We will work with partners such as Creative Diversity Network to identify key diversity issues and programme events or initiatives which address the barriers different groups face to participating in our industries.
We will monitor our audiences and feed the findings into our communications plan for promoting our events and initiatives.
We will begin a comprehensive monitoring of the composition of our juries to help us assess whether these groups reflect the industries we represent.
We will ensure that our citation readers reflect the film, television and video games industries as closely as possible.
We will host a diversity event on behalf of our industries each year.
