Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Statement

Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Statement is underpinned by a core belief that having a diverse and inclusive ethos is essential if we are to deliver on our values of collaboration, innovation and mentoring.

A+C prioritises discussion, debate, and improvements concerning Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. The troubling and long-standing problems of systemic discrimination against women, BAME, and LGBTQ+ people make it necessary for us to do more to create a fair and even-handed society. We feel this responsibility, especially because media and creative industries have often been deeply implicated by the inequalities concerned.

A+C is committed to ensuring that people of all backgrounds have the opportunity to work with us and feel welcome, safe, and supported when they do.

As a company, we are committed to:

  • Listening to staff opinions on our films' equality, diversity, and inclusiveness.

  • Pursue stories that amplify characters' voices across race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, age, religion, disability (including mental health), body size, gender, gender identity, and gender expression.

  • Continually reviewing our output to improve its ED&I, based on feedback from staff and developments in the discipline;

  • Ensuring that all our films provide substantial opportunities for reflection on and discussion of questions of ED&I;

  • Ensuring that A+C events, including our webinars and screenings, fully consider ED&I issues in their planning and range of topics.

  • Ensuring that all managers receive unconscious bias training and implement its principles in their work;

  • Guarantee that all staff are equally supported regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, age, religion, disability (including mental health), body size, gender, gender identity, and gender expression.

  • Providing support and assistance to staff with mental health difficulties or mental illness, destigmatising those problems;

  • We are devising plans to increase our staff's diversity and character output's inclusiveness and character.


We hope to facilitate open-minded listening and honest conversation to transform our beliefs into action, learn from adversity, and improve.
