Key organisations from across the screen industry have made a united and formal commitment to work towards building a more inclusive sector.

The Australian Film, Television and Radio School (AFTRS), Foxtel, ABC, SBS, Network Ten, Australian Directors’ Guild (ADG), Screen Producers’ Australia (SPA), FreeTV Australia, ASTRA, the Australian Screen Industry Group, MediaRING, Screen Australia and each of the state screen agencies this week joined together to form the Screen Diversity and Inclusion Network (SDIN).

To join the SDIN, all of the organisations have had to officially commit to a charter that enshrines equal opportunities, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, disability or geographic location.
