A diverse and inclusive culture empowers and respects our uniqueness, welcoming our perspectives and embracing the features that make us who we are. What is the relationship between films and politics and the role they play for a more inclusive culture?
Films have possibly become our most accessible form of escape, from within our walls, and time after time we have witnessed the power of film inspire individuals and sometimes cause an uproar within society. During this episode, we explore the relationship between films and politics and the role they play for a more diverse and inclusive culture. Featuring Jeyben Castro (Republican Initiative) and Kemba Hendrix (Democrat Initiative) from the House Office of Diversity & Inclusion and Josh Welsh, President of Film Independent, we take a closer look at statistics in the workforce and how it impacts business, as well as behind the scenes decisions and what we can do now to prevent COVID-19 from setting us back as we move to a more digital future.
