Wide Lens, a new equity, diversity and inclusion training program developed for CMPA members. The program is tailor-made to help producers recognize and eliminate systemic barriers for individuals from equity-seeking and Indigenous communities, and to create new opportunities for engagement, partnership and collaboration.
Wide Lens aims to help producers understand the root causes of unconscious bias and systemic racism, develop policies and frameworks to address these issues, and implement best practices in community engagement and authenticity in storytelling.
Individual training sessions offered through the Wide Lens program are developed in partnership with subject-matter experts and community leaders, with deep expertise and understanding of the issues covered.
Throughout the year, the CMPA Wide Lens program will offer CMPA members the opportunity to sign up for training sessions and access supporting resources.
