PRODUCERS GUILD OF AMERICA ANNOUNCES ITS ANTI-SEXUAL HARASSMENT GUIDELINES

The Producers Guild of America (PGA) today presented its “PGA Anti-Sexual Harassment Guidelines” to its 8,200 strong membership, outlining steps the nonprofit has enacted toward combating sexual harassment in the entertainment industry. These concrete, practical protocols are initial recommendations from the PGA’s Anti-Sexual Harassment Task Force, which was created last October in response to extensive reports of alleged professional misconduct by high-profile figures in the entertainment community. During a special meeting on Wednesday, the PGA’s Board of Directors unanimously ratified its Anti-Sexual Harassment Guidelines, providing specific procedures to safeguard against sexual harassment on and off the set.

Said PGA Presidents Gary Lucchesi and Lori McCreary, “Sexual harassment can no longer be tolerated in our industry or within the ranks of the Producers Guild membership. As producers, we provide key leadership in creating and sustaining work environments built on mutual respect, so it is our obligation to change our culture and eradicate this abuse. While the PGA is a voluntary membership organization, the PGA’s Anti-Sexual Harassment Guidelines are sanctioned as best practices for our members.

“The PGA is indebted to TIME’S UP as a resource in creating our protocols. We will continue to work with them, the industry-wide Commission led by Anita Hill, and other organizations in our community until sexual harassment is eliminated from the entertainment workplace.”

The PGA Anti-Sexual Harassment Guidelines represent the first steps from the Guild’s Anti-Sexual Harassment Task Force, which is conducting an on-going review of the tools available to facilitate prevention, reporting, counseling, and protection. These protocols will evolve as the task force’s recommendations are implemented. A full copy of the PGA Anti-Sexual Harassment Guidelines is included below as a separate document.
