Research Report: Building Inclusive Networks in the Film & Television Industry

“Building Inclusive Networks in the Film and Television Industry” is a nation-wide

qualitative study examining factors that contribute to the inclusion/exclusion of BIPOC

women from industry networking events.


The study looked to fill a gap in the existing literature and in our knowledge on the

subject of systemic racism in the screen industries. While most studies about diversity

and inclusion in the industry examine the production chain and hiring practices, this

study explored the informal vertical and horizontal networking opportunities, which can

affect the trajectory of one’s career in film and television.
