Coimisiún na Meán is publishing the Strategy today which aims to facilitate greater inclusion in the sector

The first Gender, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy for the Irish audio and audio visual sector is being published today by Coimisiún na Meán.

The Strategy will apply to those involved in film, television, radio, audio and animation production.

Among the actions outlined within the Strategy is the need for all audio and audiovisual media and media associations to publish their own Gender, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (GEDI) policies, plans and strategies.

Under the Strategy, Coimisiún na Meán expects media service providers to take steps to facilitate greater inclusion in the sector, including:

•             facilitating the provision of training for staff on disability awareness and unconscious bias,

•             enhancing the accessibility of workplaces and content,

•             examining the provision of paid internships and strategic mentorships for minority groups.

Following the publication of the Strategy, a set of GEDI Standards for the sector will be developed by Coimisiún na Meán.

Speaking about the publication of the Gender, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy, Coimisiún na Meán’s Media Development Commissioner, Rónán Ó'Domhnaill said: “Having a media landscape which reflects the diversity of Irish society has been a priority for Coimisiún na Meán since its establishment.”
