SWIFT Code of Conduct Amended

Sisters Working in Film and Television (SWIFT) a South African NPO for women working in film and television and is a member of SASFED alongside the IPO. One of SWIFT’s missions is to expose sexual and racial abuse and discrimination in the workplace and, furthermore, to prevent such occurrences from taking place in the first instance. They have recently published an amended Code of Conduct and request IPO members to sign-up and begin implementing the code both in their companies and within productions: SWIFT A Code of Good Practice Sexual Harassment in the Workplace – 1 September 2019(1)(1)a

IPO Co-Chairs Rehad Desai and Lwazi Manzi signed the organisation’s Respectful Workplace Code of Conduct in December 2017 during the 16 Days of Activism against Abuse of Women and Children in support of the mobilisation by SWIFT. The IPO’s Code of Conduct is bolstered by the Respectful Workplace Policy.
