A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO INCREASING DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION | DIAMOND TRAINING
The CDN and TriForce Creative Network are working together to provide Diversity and Inclusion training for both production companies and freelancers.
This workshop is split into two parts of two hours each. The morning session is for Heads of Production and Development as well as HR and Diversity representatives to help teams with techniques to achieve a more diverse and inclusive range of people in the workplace, including creative talent and crew. The afternoon session will focus on practical Diamond Training and will be open to freelance production staff who would like a training session on how completing Diamond forms in the Silvermouse system.
The training sessions are free but places are limited. Please only reserve a maximum of two spaces per production company and please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are unable to attend so we can release your space. Please book the correct session for you!
We will be considering diversity in its broadest sense – gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion or belief, disability and social mobility.
