Food for Thought: Making Diversity and Inclusion a Priority

Rhythms I

In this special interview session, you’ll hear from Deborah Williams, executive director of the UK-based Creative Diversity Network, or CDN. The organization is funded by the UK’s main broadcasters and coordinates the ground-breaking Diamond diversity monitoring and reporting project, and while Williams oversees the implementation of all of CDN’s current projects, she also meets and consults with network and production executives in North America concerning diversity and inclusion initiatives. Here, you’ll learn about how the Diamond project has educated and inspired broadcasters in the UK to make diversity and inclusion a top priority, and how North American networks and producers can follow suit.

*Advance sign-up is required. A three-course plated lunch will be provided.

Sign-up closes on Friday, January 17 at 5:00 PM EST.
