Images and stories are incredibly powerful tools. Developing content that showcase diverse perspectives and backgrounds is one way for underrepresented groups to increase representation on the screen and expand influence behind the camera. On the heels of the recent racial injustice events, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and CBS Television entered into a multi-year partnership to develop and produce diverse and inclusive content for linear television networks and streaming platforms.
Join Anderson alumni for an exclusive event featuring Darrell Miller, the attorney who spearheaded this landmark partnership, in conversation with Jay Tucker, Executive Director, UCLA Anderson Center for MEMES. They will discuss how this initiative came about, the opportunities it will create, and how the resulting programming and content will shape perspectives and drive conversations around critical issues to advance the fight against racism.
Webinar participants can submit live questions for the featured speakers.
