Diversity in television isn’t a new issue. It’s a problem whether it applies to gender, race, or other minorities that hasn’t been solved, and won’t be unless we take significant action. Join a conversation on the current state of affairs in the TV writing industry. Hear from those that are dealing with it from season to season — the showrunners, creators, writers, executive producers, who can talk about ways it should be tackled, the challenges and solutions, as well as some of the WGA initiatives that are already in place. They’re inviting you to not just listen, but to participate in the discussion by gaining perspective and sharing your ideas on how to create a new reality.
