Lights Camera Access! Survey Request

  Lights, Camera, Access! has engaged Nordicity to study the employment of persons with disabilities in the film and TV production, broadcasting (including TV and radio) and digital media industries.   The survey will be live through June 17th.  The objectives of this study are to:   1.     Provide a current portrait of employment of persons with disabilities in the Ontario film, television, broadcasting (including radio) and digital media industries;
2.     Identify challenges and opportunities with regard to “screen industry” employment – mainly from the perspective of people with disabilities;
3.     Open the discussion around inclusive hiring and interventions with tangible results which can inform both employers and individuals seeking work in these industries.   As part of this engagement, LCA! has launched an accessible online survey aimed at persons with disabilities working in the screen-based industries.   The questionnaire gathers information about the experience, earning power and career trajectories of persons with disabilities working in the screen-based industries.
