Interesting! These two industries shape our world in so many ways.
I jumped from filmmaking to tech and found they both are soooo much in need of change. It’s one thing to have Modern Family the tv show — that’s like having #blacktwitter. Now both industries need to work on themselves internally and hire, promote and retain diverse people. The first step toward change is really, truly seeing there is a problem. That happened for both the film industry and the tech industry in 2015.
I believe this year is a tipping point for diversity in both industries. Already the sparks of change are flying in 2016!
Next year, in 2017, I suspect there will be a new focus on inclusion. I can’t wait!
