Building Inclusive Networks in the Film and Television Industry

Context Summary: The study looked to fill a gap in the existing literature and in our knowledge on the subject of systemic racism in the screen industries. While most studies about diversity and inclusion in the industry examine the production chain and hiring practices, this study explored the informal vertical and horizontal networking opportunities, which can affect the trajectory of one’s career in film and television.
