According to recent diversity statistics, from 'UK Screen' and 'Animation UK', the VFX (27% female) and Animation industries (40% female) still have a long way to go to reach gender equality.
Last Thursday, 'Animated Women UK' and our very own MD Noreen Connolly teamed up with 'ACCESS:VFX' and 'Animation UK' to host a panel at The Mill. They opened a discussion on these statistics, the challenges faced in trying to address them and how to formulate a plan for permanent change.
The evening was hugely successful, with over 100 attendees including many students starting their career paths.
The industry still has a long way to go to bridge the gender imbalance and pay gap, but by hosting engaging and inspiring panels such as these, hopefully we can further the conversation and make a change!
