We will be holding a one day conference at BFI Southbank on Monday 15 May when we will be bringing together industry organisations from the UK, as well as representatives from WFTV chapters around the world to discuss current gender equality initiatives, share best practice and look at how we can work together going forward –  internationally as well as in our own countries.
