Variety To Host First-Ever Conference On Diversity And Inclusion In Hollywood

Variety To Host First-Ever Conference On Diversity And Inclusion In Hollywood Chairman of Universal Pictures and Academy Award Nominee Pharrell Williams to Keynote

 Variety, the definitive voice of the entertainment industry, today announced that the media company will host the industry's first-ever conference focused on diversity – including gender, ethnicity, aging and sexuality – on film, television and digital outlets. Over the past several months, the conversation around these topics has intensified, and Variety will lead the dialog by engaging some of the most senior corporate executives and talent in the creative community. The conference is called "Inclusion." Donna Langley, chairman of Universal Studios, and multi award-winning musician Pharrell Williams will have keynote conversations with Variety editors in addition to a host of panels on topics ranging from LBGTQ rights to advancing Latino entertainment to the cultural importance of creating programs designed to support underrepresented groups in Hollywood. PwC's U.S. Chairman Brian Cullinan will moderate a fireside chat with the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. "There is no issue in Hollywood today more important and relevant than diversity and inclusion," said Michelle Sobrino-Stearns, group publisher of Variety. "It is Variety's privilege and responsibility to lead an industry wide dialogue and bring the decision makers of our community together to promote solutions to counter the lack of minority talent in film and television. This is an issue that transcends the entertainment business, and we are excited to play a role in the broader conversation." "Age discrimination is an incredibly important issue, not just to AARP's 38 million members nationwide, but across all facets of society," said AARP CEO Jo Ann Jenkins.  "We hope the dialogue at the Variety conference will lead not only to greater awareness of the issue, but to more and better opportunities for talented actors, producers, directors and others in the creative community – whatever their age." According to a 2016 report from The Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies at UCLA, minorities remain underrepresented in Hollywood on every front (nearly 3 to 1 among film leads and directors). In addition, the study shows that U.S. consumers crave diverse film and television content. In fact, "films with relatively diverse casts enjoyed the highest median global box office receipts, and [in television] social media engagement peaked for broadcast scripted shows with casts that were greater than 30 percent minority." Variety's conference will be held on November 1, 2016 at The Montage in Beverly Hills. AARP, PwC and City National Bank are sponsors.

ROLAND S. MARTIN & WENDY WILLIAMS TALK RACE IN AMERICA

ROLAND S. MARTIN & WENDY TALK RACE IN AMERICA 

Today, July 14th, on The Wendy Williams Show, "News One Now" host Roland S. Martin sat down with Wendy to talk about Historically Black Colleges and the NAACP. 

The TV Commentator Roland S. Martin took issue with Wendy's comments on HBCU's last week. Wendy apologized for these comments and invited Roland S. Martin on the show to educate Wendy and her audience on this important issue. Wendy started the interview, "Roland help everyone understand why I was so wrong." 

"When it comes to our colleges, we couldn't go to those schools," Roland said. "As a matter of fact, we couldn't read during slavery. You could be killed if you were found to be reading. So, that's why it is so critically important. Our institutions are allowing us to survive in America even though we built this country," explained Martin. 

Roland also weighed in on race in America, police brutality and the Black Lives Matter movement. In addition, he spoke to Wendy about how we can talk to our kids about these prevalent issues. As Roland said, "Race is tied to everything. Race is embedded in the DNA of America." View the full interview below.

Radio Facts Magazine Salutes Minority Women in Radio

cathy-hughes-corp-pic-111 The new Radio Facts Magazine will honor minority women in Radio and will hit the streets in Sept.

Be on the lookout for the issue featuring some of the most successful and talented women in the industry. If you would like to make a suggestion as to whom we should include (must have at least 5 years of solid experience and success) let us know by clicking this link and filling out this quick form. https://radiofacts.com/radio-facts-magazine-minority-women-media/
