With diversity, equity, and inclusion in the media being more important than ever now, cultural production firm SRC Partners has announced a collection of vital industry panels it will produce for the Non-Obvious Beyond Diversity Summit, a free virtual event being held later this month from January 26th to 29th. Over 150 incredible speakers will gather for this event for 48 panels with SRC Partners managing eight of them which include acclaimed creators from Ms. Marvel, Insecure, 30 Rock, and Ramy who will speak about their experiences and provide insight into developing a more inclusive industry.
SRC Partners is proud to present several of the Summit’s panels. Deniese Davis (Co-Executive Producer, Insecure) and Meera Menon (Director, Ms. Marvel) headline the panel “Women of Color: Top Producers Flipping the Script” while “Cultural Confidence: Teaching Young People To Be Proud of Their Heritage” will bring together speakers including Maulik Pancholy (Actor, 30 Rock) and Leela Ladnier (Actor, Mira, Royal Detective). The panel “Casting Calls: How to Create Accurate Representations for Underrepresented Communities” will feature Y. Shireen Razack (Producer, New Amsterdam) and Lydia Dean Pilcher (Producer, Cine Mosaic).
Additional panels produced by SRC include “Backstage: Lifting the Curtain on Theater’s Diversity Problem” and “Rethinking the Way Muslims are Portrayed in Media and Entertainment.” These two panels are co-produced by SRC’s partner Pass the Mic Media, a production and consulting outfit helping to bring quality stories to life with an eye on inclusion and equity.
