Help nail the screen industry's gender pay gap!

If you haven't already, please take our latest survey - you will be helping untold screen industry women who earn significantly less than men. 
There are more than 12,000 people working in the industry here, and so far nearly 1000 people have participated in the survey. We need to make this worthwhile - let's get it to 2000! 

All three surveys will close on Sunday 14 August. The relevant collated, non-identifiable, results will be shared with the industry, particularly the Guilds.

Here is the third and final surveyfor those of you working Above the Line – ie writers, directors, producers, actors.

Note that you may come and go from the survey, completing it at your own pace.

You all know the gender pay gap is currently our primary area of concern. We are therefore asking you all (women, men and the gender diverse) to take the time to contribute to this significant piece of data collection.  Yes, we are asking you what you get paid, but gathering this information is essential for identifying the facts behind the gender pay gap.  We ask you all to trust us and take the time to help improve the economic situation for women in the screen industry.

  • The information is collected anonymously and it will be impossible to identify individuals in the collated responses
  • The information will be analysed by the Executive Director of WIFTNZ and her data analyst only and single / identifiable responses will be kept confidential
  • Once collated the intention is to use the information gathered in rate card negotiations and the consultations that will occur around the Screen Industry Workers Bill.
  • All industry guilds are being asked to encourage their membership to complete this survey
  • You are encouraged to circulate it, and talk to people about it
