It is no secret that media has a big impact on shaping a child's world view and self-perception, but it is clear that not every child sees his or herself reflected on the small screen. The movement to make kids TV more inclusive and diverse, and challenge stereotypes faced by both boys and girls, has been gathering momentum. But how do we get there quicker? This panel of seasoned creatives including Chris Nee, the mind behind the groundbreaking Doc McStuffins series has a blueprint in mind, and they'd like to share it with you.
