Live It To Learn It was launched in 2016 in partnership with Strada Films, Thunderbird Productions and the hit series Kim’s Convenience. It was made possible by the vision and coordination of the supervising producers of the show, Robin Cass and Sandra Cunningham. Since then it has been embraced by the industry, upholding the shared value of facilitating greater diversity behind-the-scenes in the Film and TV industry.
