Diversity Is Not Optional: Creating Media For Gen Z And Beyond

North 227C

Sunday May 29, 2022 - 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm

Gen Z (born between 1997 and 2012) doesn’t need you to educate them about diversity. Gen Z and the kids of Gen Alpha (2013 and on) consume media from around the world subbed, dubbed, or in its original language. They expect artists to create worlds that are diverse and free of stereotypes. But now, it’s time to take diversity to the next level: intersectionality. The panelists will dissect this topic from personal, professional, and business angles. They will also give examples for other creators to watch/read/consume to edutain themselves and prepare for the next generation of SF/F fans.
