DandI offers production companies, organisations and broadcasters the tailored support they need, to not only meet diversity and inclusion targets, but to exceed them.
Operating as a single-point-of-contact, we utilise our UK wide, fully inclusive talent network (with a focus on under-represented groups, BAME, LGBTQ, Disabled, as well as addressing opportunity poverty and gender inequality). We can help you find on and off screen talent from all walks of life, and at all levels of experience – from trainee to HOD, intern to Executive or clerical to creative
From simply advertising roles across our network, to an end-to-end recruitment process, or targeted recommendations from our talent programmes alumni; we make it easy to find the talent you need with minimal drain on your resources
Acting as a ‘bolt-on’ D&I Department for any organisation, we offer a bespoke and wrap around Support Service on the end of the phone, tailored to individual requirements and scale
TriForce Creative Network is a not-for-profit organisation that for the past 15 years has been providing a trusted and viable avenue for the industry to discover diverse talent
Providing opportunities for actors, writers, directors, producers and crew through MonologueSlam, WriterSlam, Get A Grip, The TriForce Short Film Festival and bespoke diversity programmes
Proceeds from DandI go towards supporting these initiatives, ensuring this vital work can continue to effect the positive change needed in our industry
The TCN have been nurturing and supporting diverse talent for many years. Dandi helps pull together their talented network in one place for production companies to utilise with ease. It's a great help in crewing up and addressing on and off screen diversity and making sure production companies can meet broadcasters D&I targets.
I've seen first hand the tangible outcomes The TCN have generated over the past 15 years and the impact it's had on our industry – both on and off screen. I love the fact that they are now launching Dandi off the back of the strong foundations they’ve already laid down. I’m sure it will be another great step towards making our industry a more inclusive and diverse place. It has my 100% backing.
I have been waiting for a talent service like Dandi – in a world where finally diversity is being taken seriously, it will be invaluable to be able to tap into the expertise and relationships TCN has.
When presented with projects that don't hit our vital D&I targets, there is now a place I can direct production companies to that can effectively and tangibly solve their issues. If I see the Dandi mark, I know they are truly committed to an inclusive workforce.
I regularly see great projects from companies that are struggling to fulfil ITV's Social Partnership requirements on diversity. With 15 years of the TCN's talent development work behind it, Dandi is exactly the support they need. Their mark of approval shows me that production companies are serious about inclusion and are actively doing something about it, which gives me confidence they'll be able to hit those targets.
