COMMIT

As a content producer (fiction, documentaries, debate programs, entertainment, magazine programs, etc.), Lagardère Studios is fully aware of the fundamental role production companies play in representing Diversity in the French audiovisual world. Content must be a true reflection of society.

RAISE AWARENESS AND INFORM

In 2012, Lagardère Studios began making its producers more aware of the need for ethnic diversity, and has since continued training top management and all company employees in a wide range of diversity issues.

RECRUIT AND PROMOTE DIFFERENTLY

Lagardère Studios has partnered with l'École Miroir (located in Epinay-sur-Seine), an establishment which provides free training for young people from underprivileged areas in performing and audiovisual arts. Within the context of this partnership, the company financed the portfolios of some of the school’s students. These portfolios, a real professional tool in the arts, were distributed to casting producers and directors at different production companies.

COMMUNICATE

Both externally and internally, Lagardère Studios organizes events and produces content to raise awareness about diversity. Several initiatives have been taken outside the company. For over 10 years, Electron Libre has organized Le concert pour la tolerance (Concert for tolerance) on the Agadir beach in Morocco. DEMD produces the series Joséphine Ange Gardien (Joséphine, Guardian Angel) for TF1 and Caïn (Cain) for France Télévisions. As part of their in-house program, Lagardère Studios collaborates regularly with disability-friendly companies; it organizes exhibitions or workshops for employees and provides support for associations.

EVALUATE AND SHARE INITIATIVES

Broadcasters (TF1, France Télévisions, M6 etc.) of programs produced by Lagardère Studios subsidiaries also regularly highlight Diversity issues (involving ethnicity, disability, equality, etc.) through their programmed content. By doing so, they promote our own commitment for a better representation of Diversity.
