HFPA Adopts Reform Plan

The members of the HFPA have voted overwhelmingly to adopt a plan for radical reform of the Association. Today’s vote reaffirms our commitment to change. We have already taken some action that will allow us to make swift progress. Because we understand the urgency and issue of transparency, we will be continuously updating the members and the public as we move forward in making our organization more inclusive and diverse. We understand that the hard work starts now and we remain dedicated to becoming a better organization and an example of diversity, transparency, and accountability in the industry.

The following steps have either started or will begin immediately:

  • Identifying a vendor to set up a hotline (in process).
  • Hiring a search firm that will put together a list of potential C-suite candidates.
  • Identifying new members to increase the membership more than 50 percent in the next 18 months, with new members being allowed to vote on the Golden Globes.
  • Creating a list of DEI consultants (in process).
  • Retaining Ropes & Gray to ensure seamless implementation of the plan.
