Diversity and representation are challenges facing the entertainment industry. However, in recent years, we’ve seen how the inclusion of underrepresented voices has positively impacted society as a whole, further emphasizing the importance of these efforts. This panel will discuss how content creators and storytellers of diverse backgrounds can break into the industry, and the support of producers and distributors recognizing the importance of such new voices for the next generation of media consumers.

The panel brings together key players of diverse backgrounds to share how they broke into Hollywood and how they are now using their stature to create positive change in our society.
