What to do if you witness or experience bullying at work?
Bullying, Harassment and Discrimination (BHD) are significant issues in the Film and TV industry, and are a matter of great concern in today’s workplaces. According to our 2019 Looking Glass survey, more than four in five people working in TV and film have either experienced or witnessed BHD in the workplace. Sadly, it is one of our industry’s main causes of poor mental health.
