Equality and Diversity Policy

This policy does not have contractual effect and is provided for guidance only.


An integral part of Boffola Pictures Limited’s (the “Company”, “we”, “us”, “our”) success as a producer of high-end television programming is the diverse and inclusive workforce it engages. We have a zero-tolerance approach to all forms of unlawful or unfair discrimination in the workplace. We are committed to fostering a creative and innovative environment within which everybody who works with us is able to work and encourage diversity and inclusion across all levels of our productions.

We want our workforce to be truly representative of all sections of society and believe in creating a culture that attracts, develops and retains the best talent possible, and enables everyone working for or on our behalf to be their best.

This Policy expresses our commitment not to unlawfully discriminate on the grounds of age, disability, gender, gender reassignment, marital status (including civil partnerships), pregnancy and maternity, race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, national origin, religion or belief and sexual orientation. We will not unlawfully discriminate because of any other irrelevant factor and will build a culture that values meritocracy, openness, fairness and transparency.


This Policy applies to all cast and crew engaged on Boffola Pictures productions, which includes all members of crew (working on or off-screen) such as writers, HOD’s, directors, producers, casting directors and such other crew working on or off-screen on either a part-time or full-time basis, in addition to all our cast (main and supporting artists) and people engaged through third party organisations.


Everybody who works with us, whether on a part-time, full-time, permanent or temporary basis should be treated fairly and with respect. Selection decisions for all work opportunities on our productions will be made based on aptitude and ability.

We will encourage everybody who works with us to develop their full potential and their talents and resources will be fully utilised to maximise the creativity and success of the Company and our productions.

We will:

  • Where appropriate, take positive action aimed at addressing disadvantage and under-representation in the workforce.
  • Review all our formal and informal hiring practices and procedures to ensure they are fair and help us to identify the best talent.
  • Identify and take opportunities to increase the diversity of casting decisions.
  • Ensure reasonable adjustments are made to enable disabled people to work in or with our Company, both on and off screen.
  • Actively seek to increase the diversity of our talent networks.
  • Create an environment in which individual differences and the contributions of everybody who works with us on our productions are recognised and valued.
  • Ensure everybody engaged on our productions is able to work in an environment that promotes dignity and respect for all. We will not tolerate any form of intimidation, bullying, harassment or victimisation.

We will monitor the success of this Policy regularly and review our progress at least once a year.

This Policy is fully supported by the senior management of the Company and everybody who works with us is responsible for the promotion and advancement of this Policy. Behaviour, actions or words that transgress the Policy will not be tolerated. Breaches of the Policy are likely to be regarded as misconduct and could lead to disciplinary proceedings and/or result in termination of engagement.
