“Over
the
past
25
years,
the
HFPA
has
donated
$50
million
to
more
than
70
entertainment-related
charities,
film
restoration,
scholarship
programs
and
humanitarian
efforts;
incredibly
impactful
organizations,
many
of
whom
were
hit
hard
over
the
last
two
years
as
a
result
of
the
pandemic,” the
HFPA
said
in
a
statement.

The
HFPA
also
plans
to
use
the
event
as
an
opportunity
to
redress
ongoing
diversity
concerns
that
the
organisation
has
been
facing
for
a
while
now.

“During
the
program,
Kyle
Bowser,
Senior
Vice
President
of
the
NAACP
Hollywood
Bureau,
will
further
discuss
the
‘Reimagine
Coalition,’
a
joint
five-year
initiative
to
increase
diversity,
equity
and
inclusion
across
the
global
entertainment
industry,” the
HFPA
said.

“Each
year
the
HFPA
and
the
NAACP
Hollywood
Bureau
will
collaborate
on,
fund,
and
support
a
series
of
trailblazing
initiatives,
with
the
overall
goals
of
ensuring
visibility
of
projects
from
artists
of
diverse
racial
and
ethnic
backgrounds;
increasing
diverse
representation
in
the
industry;
and
building
pathways
to
inclusion
for
young
artists
and
journalists
of
color,” the
association
added
in
the
statement.

Attendees
are
required
to
have
proof
of
vaccination
and
a
booster
shot
along
with
a
negative
PCR
test
in
the
last
48
hours
before
the
entry
to
the
event.
All
guests
will
be
masked
and
socially
distanced
at
all
times
within
the
ballroom.
There
will
be
no
red
carpet,
and
no
media
credential
requests
will
be
accepted.

“Over
the
last
eight
months,
the
HFPA
has
completely
overhauled
its
bylaws,
implementing
sweeping
changes
from
top
to
bottom
that
address
ethics
and
code
of
conduct,
diversity,
equity
and
inclusion,
governance,
membership,
and
more.
Recently,
the
HFPA
admitted
their
largest
and
most
diverse
class
to
date
of
21
new
members,
all
of
whom
are
first-time
Golden
Globe
voters,” the
organisation
said
in
a
release,
posted
on
its
official
website.

The
HFPA,
which
consists
of
US-based
international
journalists,
has
been
at
the
centre
of
criticism
after
an
investigative
report
by
The
Los
Angeles
Times
last
year
revealed
lack
of
representation
of
Black
and
female
members
in
its
ranks,
accusations
of
self-dealing
and
other
issues,
leading
to
severe
criticism
from
Hollywood
stars
to
production
companies.
