|Overview:||This session looks at the Rigs of Color project and the allies who helped the project more than double the characters of color available to the public. Diversifying the industry and improving representation is not expensive, doesn't require being up to date on the latest science, nor does it need to be a time suck. It can bring joy. Individual actions can be as impactful as the work of prominent advocacy groups. As companies declare in carefully crafted statements, "Diversity matters; we are doing it." It is easy to get lost in trying to fix every aspect of the issue.This session looks at what breaking into the industry looks like and what changes can be made to get capable workers who believe in inclusivity.|
