AFTRA's National Equal Employment Opportunity Initiative

Posted July 19, 2009

AFTRA’s National Equal Employment Opportunity initiative is aimed at increasing and ensuring equal employment opportunities for all members including women, minorities, seniors, young performers and people with disabilities by protecting and strengthening non-discrimination/affirmative action provisions in all AFTRA contracts.

Journalists of color: Combining its commitment to support diversity both on the screen and in related areas of employment, AFTRA maintains an active relationship with various minority groups, attending conventions each year held by such groups as the Asian American Journalists Association, National Association of Black Journalists, the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association and the Native American Journalists Association.
