The BFI has appointed Deborah Williams to the new role of Diversity Manager.   
Williams starts at the BFI on 1 June to help push forward the BFI’s diversity agenda, specifically the Three Ticks initiative across all BFI funding activities.

Joining the BFI from Arts Council England (ACE) where she was Senior Officer, Policy and Research, Equality and Diversity, Williams will sit within the BFI Film Fund team and report directly to Film Fund Director, Ben Roberts.
Three Ticks requires all recipients of BFI Lottery film production funding to demonstrate commitment to encouraging diverse representation across their workforces, creating opportunities for training and skills development and on-going career progression, and advancing the portrayal of under-represented stories and groups on screen.

Williams’s responsibilities will include working with BFI Head of Production, Fiona Morham to support producers of BFI-backed productions – of which there are an average of 25-30 per year – to implement and embrace the Three Ticks guidelines, helping them to achieve the most positive result for their films.
