Being Seen: How to improve authentic diversity in kids TV

In this exclusive research-driven presentation, we’ll explore the findings of a recent Canadian study looking at the representation awareness and needs of kids ages six to nine, 10 to 13 and 14 to 17, as well as talking to parents of these groups plus preschoolers and under-represented producers of children’s content to understand their experiences and observations. These insights have been distilled into several important directives that producers and buyers can use to make a positive change in the ongoing movement to make kids TV more inclusive.
