What is the Hollywood Commission?
The Hollywood Commission is focused on building respect on set and in the broader industry workplace. Everything the commission does is in furtherance of that goal. The organization is chaired by Anita Hill and board members Kathleen Kennedy and Nina Shaw.
Is the survey anonymous?
The survey is completely anonymous – you will not be asked for any personal information, and any identifying information that you do provide will be scrubbed by an independent third party before it is submitted to the Hollywood Commission. Local 871 will not see any individual responses.
How will the information from the survey be used?
In 2019-20, the Hollywood Commission conducted its first survey of 9,630 entertainment workers in television and film, commercials, live theater, music, broadcast news, talent representation, public relations, and corporate settings. You can find the full reports here.
With a goal of 20,000 responses – double the participation of the first survey – the new survey builds on the results of that groundbreaking work. When the results are tabulated, the Commission expects to learn which strategies are providing an impact toward cultural change, and where systems can be improved. Survey responses will focus the Hollywood Commission’s efforts over the next several years – informing the issues that it will elevate for the community and pinpointing where the organization will prioritize its resources.
How long will the survey be open?
The survey will be open through November 27.
