Representation and Allyship in Entertainment and Media

 “Black Panther” and “Crazy Rich Asians” proved (again) that diversity pays dividends, but Hollywood is still overwhelmingly white and male. So what gives? Lucy Diavolo (Teen Vogue), Sean Gupta (BET), Jane Berliner (Authentic Talent & Literary Management), Korin D. Williams (Kronicle Media), and Rachelle Rumph (Sarah Lawrence College) will discuss the ways in which entertainment and media can contribute to and constrain collective liberation; the barriers to equity and blindspots around gender, race, and sexuality that persist in both industries; and strategies for effective allyship for industry professionals and consumers.
