"Every time someone earnestly explains why it is so incredibly deeply difficult for them to find a woman or a man of color to hire,” says Shonda Rhimes, “an angel loses its wings.” In other words, it’s way past time for Hollywood’s offices, sets and writers rooms to represent robust diversity, and THR’s first-ever roster of Agents of Change highlights the key figures working daily to make that happen. They were chosen — after extensive reporting and consultation with stakeholders at every level of entertainment, as well as key members of inclusion-centered industry groups like Time’s Up and ReFrame — for their active leadership and mentorship: These are the producers, execs, creators, stars and advocates making content, making hires and making noise for those still finding their voice. Adds Rhimes, “Good men fix broken things.” So meet the good men (including some straight white dudes), good women and one nonbinary person who are leading the way.
Profiles written by Tara Bitran, Kirsten Chuba, Ashley Cullins, Rebecca Ford, Lesley Goldberg, Mia Galuppo, Natalie Jarvey, Rebecca Keegan, Borys Kit, Michael O’Connell, Alex Ritman, Bryn Elise Sandberg, Tatiana Siegel and Rebecca Sun.
