liftUPlift Worldwide was thrilled to partner with leaders from the Chicago Media and Film industries to codify a shared set of values regarding safe and inclusive workspaces and the prevention of sexual harassment, assault, and discrimination. Together, our goal is to affect industry-wide change and build a better arts community that supports and sustains artists of all gender, racial, religious, and cultural identities.
The Standards are a template to be customized by each group that adopts them. Organizations and projects that adopt The Standards should take it upon themselves to enforce them. Best practices include designating two compliance officers who will promptly respond to and investigate reported violations.
Organizations may also partner with our team at liftUPlift Worldwide for support with compliance. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
