WOC in Film

In recent years, Hollywood has seemingly become “more diverse”, dishing us Black Panther, Crazy Rich Asians, and Get Out. But progress can be deceiving, and while movies that represent the diverse face of America seem to grow in number, the number of people behind the camera fails to reflect the diversity lended onscreen. Join us as we discuss the challenges of being a woman of color in the film industry and spill the tea on the strides we must take to not only provide diversity, but inclusion, both on and off camera.
