Reelworld Partner Presentation: Enriching the Production Landscape with Diversity and Inclusion Through Co-Productions and Partnerships

As production companies scramble to meet the new demands of diversity and inclusion from linear and streaming platforms around the world, creating access to talent who are Black, Indigenous and People of Colour is crucial for tapping into a rich and diverse cast and crew. This international panel will discuss the important role that co-productions now play in fostering diversity in TV content production and offer critical resources, such as dedicated databases, that producers can use to connect to racially diverse talent and crew. The discussion will also examine systemic barriers of entry for Black, Indigenous and People of Colour and provide key takeaways for diverse producers on leveraging co-productions that will ultimately lead to the creation of diverse stories that audiences around the world are waiting to hear.
