The series focuses on safety, equity, and power in Hollywood – the impact of these imbalances and the work being done to address them.

In this episode, Advertising Chief Officer Christena Pyle and actress and filmmaker Winter Dunn talk with co-hosts Fanshen Cox and Anya Adams about the challenges around Black women representation onscreen, the emotional labor required in diversity, inclusion and equity work, the power of pipeline programs, and creating our own narratives.
