Minorities and women remain underrepresented in all major aspects of entertainment. UCI leads the change with action by Raising Awareness, Creating Content and Supporting Talent. This is Project Unbound.
Inclusive storytelling isn’t just the right thing to do; it also contributes to relatability and novelty, two drivers of media consumption and enjoyment. That’s probably why the lack of diversity was named a Top 5 concern by movie and TV audiences today.
UCI is assembling an entertainment industry group that will publish a handbook of diverse storytelling best practices next summer. Email your best practices to firstname.lastname@example.org.
