European Producers Club unveils new gender equality charter

The document addresses four key areas of interest: sexism and harassment, equal pay and access to responsibilities, talent and content.

The EPC is encouraging its 130 members to sign the charter on a voluntary basis and is also hoping national and European film institutions that work with its producers will also come on board too.

Its obligations range from arranging staff training around best practices to deal with sexism and sexual harassment to striving for gender parity on artistic, technical and management teams to ensuring equal pay and opportunities for all staff, regardless of their gender.
