Pact has worked with the BBC to produce a new online resource to signpost indies on the ground towards practical, region-specific knowledge and information, and to connect them to talent at all levels, from runners to senior producers.
With public service broadcasters committed to shifting content production and spend out of London, this resource has been specifically designed to support indies to find the right people, in the right place, at the right time.
Indies can search by specific nation or region, as well as access a UK-wide resource which includes information about London.
Indies can access the tool via the Pact Diversity Microsite here.
Finding and nurturing diverse talent across the UK is vital if we are to build sustainable production hubs in the Nations and Regions. Pact has worked with the BBC to create this tool so that wherever indies are in the UK they can access information and resources to help them embed diversity and inclusion in their businesses and on their productions."

Don't forget to join us for Inclusion Week...
National Inclusion Week takes place from Monday 27th September to Sunday 3rd October and is designed to celebrate everyday inclusion in all its forms.
We've lined up a series of sessions over the course of the week to help you and your teams to engage with a number of inclusion topics related to the indie sector, including an exploration of socio economic class in TV and film, inclusive hiring and leadership, disability awareness, and how you can make your casting practises more inclusive in both scripted and factual genres.
