ReFrame

About

Fifty Hollywood leaders and influencers, including studio heads, agency partners, senior network executives, talent and guild representatives have come together with Women In Film and Sundance Institute to create a formal action plan to further gender parity in the media industry.

Formerly known as the Systemic Change Project, ReFrame builds on four years of research in collaboration with the Media, Diversity and Social Change Initiative at USC Annenberg and an October 2015 convening of this group. Our unique strategy involves a peer-to-peer approach, in which ReFrame Ambassador teams engage senior industry decision-makers.

Programs

ReFrame Ambassadors will introduce programs and collaborative practices designed by the group to address the key levers in the media ecosystem. Initial programs include:

(1) a customized Culture Change Toolkit to provide resources, best practices and training to create cultures that yield more balanced hiring,

(2) a field-wide Sponsor/Protégé Program identifying and providing high-level endorsement for top women directors poised to advance their careers, and

(3) accreditation for gender inclusiveness in the form of a ReFrame Stamp certification.

In addition, ReFrame will distill existing data and conduct new original research to prove that diverse content is economically feasible and makes good business sense.
