(MEDIA RELASE) The Black, Indigenous and People of Colour in Film & TV organization is inviting community members to share their stories this weekend in a closed-door discussion.
Have you felt the brunt of racism or microaggressions at work? Have you been the only non-white person at your job or industry event? Have you ever experienced racism, microaggressions, and isolation/tokenism, in addition to gender or sexuality-based violence and harassment while working in the TV and film industry?
Know that you are not alone. Join us for a closed-door moderated discussion sharing stories of issues you’ve faced as Black, Indigenous and/or Person of Colour working in the TV & film industry.
- Suggested donation: $10-20
