The social partners of the EU Social Dialogue Committee in the Audiovisual sector – commercial and public broadcasters, producers, and trade unions representing journalists, cast and crew – cooperate to promote gender equality, diversity and inclusion in broadcasting and audiovisual productions.
In 2011 they adopted a Framework of Actions on gender equality in the European audiovisual sector.
In 2018, they launched a joint mapping exercise to collect information on the state-of-play and to identify the actions still needed to keep pushing for equality. The result of this work was published in May 2020 in the form of a Good Practice Handbook.
In 2022 they embarked on a 2-year project to improve the capacity of the industry to implement diversity policies. In 2023-2024 four roundtables will be organised to clarify concepts, highlight practices and experiences, and inspire future actions.
In 2023 the European social partners updated the Framework of Actions on gender equality and added a new chapter dedicated to the elimination of bullying, harassment, and sexual harassment at work.
