The Hollywood Commission

We are here to create an inclusive and equitable work environment for all.

Our Mission

We will lead the entertainment industry to a strong and equitable future by defining and implementing best practices that eliminate sexual harassment and bias for all workers, especially marginalized communities, and actively promote a culture of accountability, respect, and equality.

Our Unique Approach
We aim to eliminate the systemic problems that create and support power abuses in the workplace by working with Hollywood decision-makers to effect industry-wide change. We are doing this collectively, with effort, engagement, and input from stakeholders representing every aspect of the entertainment industry.
No other industry has ever attempted to deal with issues like these in such a collective manner. In doing so, Hollywood will be breaking new ground—and, hopefully, setting a standard for other industries to follow.
Hollywood Commission Statement on Weinstein Verdict February 24, 2020

The guilty verdict in the Harvey Weinstein case is a clarion call of justice for the countless women whose voices have been suppressed in workplaces throughout society. The Hollywood Commission’s mission does not end with the long-overdue prosecution of Mr. Weinstein. Our goal of guaranteeing a safe work environment throughout the entertainment community remains more important than ever. We must continue to develop policies and practices that make systemic change permanent and to foster a culture that reflects such change. It is our hope that more district attorneys will rethink which cases they present for trial and provide appropriate critical expert witness testimony to support those cases. Though one conviction is only the beginning, the Hollywood Commission views the Weinstein verdict as a strong statement to our industry that when we honor the voices of survivors progress is possible.
