Since the adoption of the Declaration on sexual harassment, discrimination and retaliation in the entertainment and media industries at the FIA Executive Meeting in Zagreb in October 2017, FIA has convened an international working group to regularly update the Federation on recent activities in relation to combatting sexual harassment. Today, I am pleased to present a new section and dedicated resource page on the FIA website where we will share the inspiring examples gathered among our unions that develop strategies and tools towards zero-tolerance and harassment-free work environments.
Next up I invite you to read two important stories about the WIPO Beijing Treaty. The first one will tell you all you need to know about how to take part in the World IP Day celebration on April 26 as we continue our efforts to call for the ratification of the Treaty. Without this Treaty, performers will continue to suffer a great injustice; so let’s communicate our message loudly and clearly. We count on your participation and look forward to campaigning with you!
Our other articles offer an update on ongoing European projects for dancers and for atypical workers as well as information about reforms at the EU level (copyright reform, and the modernization of the media and broadcasting regulatory framework).
