The Future of Diversity And Inclusion In The Television Industry
Across streaming, cable and broadcast, shows that reflect the country’s increasing racial and ethnic diversity are popular with viewers and drive returns for studios and platforms, according to a study released by UCLA in 2021 (with an updated report expected later this year). The report underscores the need for increased diversity among key decision-makers – executives, writers, directors and series creators. This panel will discuss the current state and efforts being undertaken to bring more diversity and inclusion to the television industry.
