The scheme gives productions access to the industry hiring platform, Staff Me Up, which helps to remove barriers to entry for job seekers from historically excluded groups to ensure studios and production houses have a direct pipeline to candidates.

Staff Me Up, which currently has more than 380,000 crew profiles including over 100,000 people from historically excluded groups, offers transparency about available job opportunities and aims to overcome the obstacle of production leadership hiring predominantly from within their own networks.

Coded for Inclusion was launched last year and is led by an alliance which includes Michael B Jordan’s Outlier Society Fellowship, Hue You Know, AMC Networks and Endeavor Content.

Daniel Rosenberg, VP of business development and strategic alliances at Staff Me Up, said: “It is our goal with these partnerships to increase the visibility of job opportunities in the industry while providing productions with an easily adaptable infrastructure to diversify their talent pools and break down the barriers of entry into Hollywood.”
