The UBCP/ACTRA Diversity and Inclusion Committee will recommend policies and advocate support structures for diverse artistic communities to help create an inclusive environment and right historical inequities within Canada’s and British Columbia’s recorded media sector.

Our Vision 
The UBCP/ACTRA Diversity and Inclusion Committee acknowledges that the land on which we gather is the unceded and traditional territory of the Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh and Squamish Coast Salish peoples.

We are volunteer committee made up of UBCP/ACTRA Members who are professionals in the entertainment industry, and are supported by UBCP/ACTRA staff.

The UBCP/ACTRA Diversity and Inclusion Committee considers ‘diverse artistic communities’ that include, but are not limited to: ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+, elder, First Nations, and physically diverse. The Diversity and Inclusion Committee strives to create an inclusive working environment that will reduce barriers and foster more opportunities for UBCP/ACTRA members from diverse communities.

Our Mission 
To draw from the personal experiences of Committee members who represent diverse communities to help to identify and articulate contemporary challenges. To recommend support structures for professionals from diverse communities who are experiencing challenges. To discuss and recommend policy and initiatives that will help create a UBCP/ACTRA agenda on diversity.

UBCP/ACTRA’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee’s Roundtable Series –  Afro-Canadian, Middle-Eastern/North-African (MENA) and East Asian actors discuss their personal experiences, challenges, triumphs. Their  stories demonstrate their perseverance against steep odds in the film and television industry. These inspirational conversations are for all performers and any underrepresented people pursuing their dreams.
