St. Thomas Times-Journal: Cultivating Creativity: New hiring database aims to stamp out systemic racism in Canadian film and TV. “Filmmaker Chanda Chevannes is used to being the only woman of colour in a room of predominantly white men when pitching a documentary. She’s not alone. While change is slowly being made towards increased diversity, Black, Indigenous and creative People of Colour (BIPOC) have for years faced barriers of racism and exclusion.
