Supporting inclusivity within the production industry
The Production Guild promotes equality and diversity within its membership and through all of our training courses and events. Our aim is to promote an inclusive culture for all our members, staff and trainees.
We do this by respecting and valuing individual differences and not treating our members, staff or trainees differently on the basis of race, ethnicity, ethnic origin, gender, nationality, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation, education, experience, opinion, belief or any other factor.
The Production Guild recognises the difficulties many new entrants face when trying to find work in the film and TV drama industry. We aim to find new routes into the production industry for people from all backgrounds and to open them up to as many people as possible.
Supporting MAMA YOUTH PROJECT
The Production Guild works in partnership with the charity MAMA YOUTH. The organisation aims to increase diversity in the TV and film industry and curb unemployment for young people.
We support Mama Youth through a number of initiatives, including raising money for them at The Production Guild awards. Our primary aim is to help raise the profile of their work and the skills of their trainees to Production Guild members and the film and TV drama industry as a whole.
Training for under represented groups
The Production Guild runs training programmes for under represented groups in the film and TV drama industry to enable them to gain the knowledge and contacts required to undertake an entry level role in film or TV.
At the end of the course we invite our members to meet the trainees at a networking drinks evening. This helps the trainees to establish possible work opportunities and assist our members in recruiting a diverse team for their production.
