Marcus Hu (Strand Releasing/AMPAS) and Carlotta Calori (Indigo Film) exchange with Dame Vivian Hunt (McKinsey & Company), following the presentation of McKinsey’s ‘Delivering through Diversity’ report.

With reference to the most recent report to be showcased by McKinsey in February, the ‘Diversity Matters’ industry debate will feature the latest insights into the findings on the better (financial and strategic) performances of companies and organizations with more diverse workforces. The presentation of the facts and figures from McKinsey’s new 2018 ‘Delivering through Diversity’ report begs the question: what does this entail for the media and entertainment industries? In which way can the formation of teams, funding programmes, marketing strategies and talent support schemes be adapted and improved? A keynote followed by an on-stage conversation with international business leaders and diversity pioneers will set the tone for EFM’s engagement for a less gender biased, more diverse industry.

Moderated by Scott Roxborough (The Hollywood Reporter)
