You may remember the #OSCARSSOWHITE controversy from a few years back, but did you ever wonder how the push for greater representation extends to TV? Because it most certainly does.

Don’t worry! Because Chelsea Kardos is here to explain all of this and more!

This 90 Minute Webinar Will Cover:

  • What are TV Diversity Initiatives? 
  • Who all has one, and what do they hope to accomplish? 
  • Diversity in front of the camera, and behind the camera 
  • How do these initiatives work within a TV network/production company
