Today, Tuesday 8 March, we’re celebrating International Women’s Day by taking part in this year’s campaign: “Break the Bias”.
Whether deliberate or unconscious, bias makes it difficult for women to move ahead. Knowing that bias exists isn’t enough, action is needed to level the playing field.
Are you in? Will you actively call out gender bias, discrimination and stereotyping each time you see it?
Will you help break the bias?
There will be a number of activities taking place to show support and here at ENU, we have an event on Women Working in Films & TV, this is an opportunity to network hear from a panel of experts in this field.
The event takes place on Tuesday 8 March 2022, from 5.30pm to 7.30pm in the Glassroom at our Merchiston campus.
The annual School of Arts & Creative Industries event celebrates women working in the film and television industries and provides an opportunity for sharing experiences, developing networks and supporting inclusion and diversity. The exciting line-up of panelists will include:
- Cara Bamford - Director and Writer whose first short film, Talia, has been very popular on this year's Festival circuit and has won an Albert award for sustainable production.
- Niahm McKeown - Writer and Director & Napier BA Film graduate, currently taking part in C4's New Director's Scheme.
- Lara Abrami - Assistant Camera & Focus Puller.
This year the event will focus on early career professionals and sustainability in production followed by informal networking with drinks and nibbles. Everyone is welcome.
The ENU Women's Network is inviting colleagues, irrespective of gender identity, to join them as they build on the network over the coming months. You can learn more and get involved here.
