Tackling Diversity from the Front Lines: #WritingWhileAsian

After last year's #OscarsSoWhite outcry, the Academy improved its diversity rates in the 2017 Oscars nominations. So our work here is done, right?
Not so fast.
In this new series, Harvardwood aims to bring together and spotlight diverse creatives and execs from all parts of the industry—actors, producers, directors, showrunners, development execs, managers, and agents—to talk frankly about their experiences and the challenges specific to their fields, with the aim of furthering the discussion of diversity in Hollywood and what can be done at all levels to address the lack thereof.
We're kicking off the series with #WritingWhileAsian, featuring Harvard alumni TV writers Leonard Chang, Sue Chung, Teresa Hsiao, and Ryan Koh. The event will begin with a small wine reception before we launch into a moderated discussion with our guest speakers, followed by a brief Q&A open to audience members.
