Join YPN Seattle for a conversation about representation, sparked by the 2020 Oscar Awards. This year’s nominations show a notable lack of diversity in major awards: every Best Director nominee is male, and the Academy only nominated one person of color for any of the four acting awards.
This homogeneity is not new – and this problem is not unique to the Oscars. This month, our speakers will put a DEI lens to the Academy Awards, and we’ll talk about more meaningful representation, no matter what sector you work in.
- The factors that inhibit diversity
- Barriers to change in the workplace
- Potential solutions
