The Power of TV: Latinx Inclusion

ABOUT THE EVENT

The Power of TV: Latinx Inclusion

The entertainment industry and its advertisers have long been aware of the power of the Latinx market, yet a significant representation gap both on screen and behind the scenes persists. Moreover, programming continues to fall short of portraying the Latinx community in a broad and inclusive manner. Developed in partnership with the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts, The Power of TV - Latinx Inclusion will assemble Latinx leaders within the industry to discuss their career paths to success, challenges faced when advocating for inclusivity, and opportunities available to increase Latinx inclusion across the industry.
