Diversity & inclusion
Our commitment to diversity and inclusion feeds into and underpins all that SIGN does. We recognise the strength and creativity that a diverse and inclusive workforce brings, and aim to increase access to opportunities across the screen industries.
Striving towards a more diverse workforce will lead to a larger pool of skills and talent, and help to make the Yorkshire and Humber region the UK’s centre for expertise in digital creativity.
In this workstream, SIGN will:
- Commision research to understand the diversity challenges in the region
- Promote the development of a more diverse workforce, more inclusive participation and greater social mobility in the screen industries
- Encourage the creation of more diverse and inclusive stories in the region
- Manage a £500k diversity fund to enable wider participation through bursaries, internships and other initiatives
The diversity and inclusion workstream is led by the University of Leeds.
