Shaw Rocket Presents: Being Seen Breakfast – Creating & commissioning more inclusive children's content

PARTNER PRESENTATION: What’s on screen affects how we’re seen – by society, by our peers, and even by ourselves. Join us as we explore the findings of a recent Canadian study that investigates diversity, inclusion and representation in kids media. Consulting with underrepresented kids, parents, and producers, the report offers critical insights and directives that producers and buyers can implement in order to foster more inclusive storytelling and authentic representation in live-action children’s content, ensuring that all kids see themselves on our screens.

Complimentary coffee and treats will be available on a first come, first serve basis - compliments of the Shaw Rocket Fund.
