The Future of Representation in Media

Representation of women, people of color, and LGBTQI+ individuals, particularly members of the trans community, has grown significantly in the past few years, but we still have a long way to go. We chat with Pose and American Horror Story actress and TransTech Social Enterprises founder Angelica Ross about what's next for representation in media. This conversation will be moderated by PowerToFly's Sr. Manager of Global DEI Strategy, Sienna Brown.
