Television Academy Applauds PGA Independent Production Safety Initiative
A message from Frank Scherma, Chairman and CEO of the Television Academy:
Last Thursday, the Producers Guild of America announced it has created a new task force dedicated to rooting out workplace harassment in the entertainment industry. The PGA will expand its Independent Production Safety Initiative to include anti-bullying trainings to help end workplace violence and aggression. We applaud this action, and we stand ready to support this and other initiatives aimed at combatting bullying and harassment.
The Television Academy strongly condemns such abusive behavior. Everyone deserves a workplace where they are treated with dignity and respect, and everyone deserves the right to tell their story if they are mistreated.
