SWAN is and has been at the service of women in the audiovisual industry for several years, establishing close relationships with meaningful players and partnerships with like minded organisations worldwide, becoming the national reference. Most importantly, SWAN has created the first ever Office for Equality & Diversity in the Swiss Audiovisual Industry as well as the Directory, the very first online inventory of women working in the domain to grant them visibility.
Both projects have been created thanks to the support of the Federal Office of Gender Equality and Migros Culture Percentage. The Directory has received an additional essential support from Müller-Möhl Foundation.
Since 2016, SWAN has organised and participated in a number of keynotes and round tables to discuss and inform around different issues pertaining to gender equality and diversity in the audiovisual industry.
Come to meet and mingle with SWAN members and friends at our annual Locarno Networking Breakfast in Sport Café - within the respect of the COVID measures, of course!
