Equal Opportunity Behind the Lens: Media Diversity

The push for diversity in film and advertising has more momentum than ever, with a movement on the rise to celebrate and increase diverse voices in production by providing mentorship opportunities for historically-underrepresented directorial talent to gain exposure.
To pave the way for a more diverse and inclusive industry of tomorrow, initiatives by production companies and industry organizations have sprouted up to equip women and minority directors with the necessary tools, counsel and resources to showcase and enhance their work for the commercial space.
Industry leaders will discuss what steps companies in the production space, from various perspective, can take to continue to make progress toward media and storytelling to encompass a much more inclusive creative perspective.
