Disability Screen Office Call for Applications: Research Project Working Group

Deadline: February 19, 2024

The Research Project Working Group (RPWG) is established by the Disability Screen Office (DSO) to provide strategic oversight of Phase II of the DSO’s major research project, titled “Mapping Representation and Barriers to Participation by People with Disabilities in the Screen-Based Media and Broadcasting Sectors.” The RPWG is composed of one Director, one or more DSO staff members, and up to six community volunteers, the majority of whom should self-identify as having a disability, reflecting regional and linguistic diversity. The responsibilities include guiding and advising Nordicity, the commissioned research partner, in methodological decisions, reviewing materials, identifying gaps, and periodically reporting activities to the DSO. Volunteers will receive an honorarium for their active and meaningful participation, in accordance with the DSO’s Compensation Policy.

This is a 2 year commitment with the possibility of extension/renewal.
