Hollywood has the opportunity to capitalize on new, authentic stories and reach a large segment of the marketplace by including people with disabilities in their content. This community represents an estimated 25 percent of the U.S. population and $21 billion in discretionary income, but they are seen in less than 3 percent of on-screen roles. Join us for an intimate discussion with Alice Austen (writer, Give Me Liberty), Lolo Spencer (Give Me Liberty), Millicent Simmonds (A Quiet Place), and Maribeth Fox (casting director, A Quiet Place) on the ways you can include this vibrant community in your next project. Moderated by Smita Pillai, chief diversity and inclusion officer of the Wall Street Journal.
