At SVCUE on Saturday, I enjoyed listening in on a great conversation between Jonathan Almerido and one of the students in his class about the importance of seeing diversity in Netflix shows during my session on TED-style talks. It is only fitting, then, that this week’s video of the week is a call from Netflix to do just that. Take a look:
Here’s what we’ll be discussing this week:
“Have you ever been in a room and not seen anybody else like you?” What was that like?
How do we subtly tell people they don’t belong?
Do you think Netflix is doing a good job at “making room” for a diverse selection of voices to be heard? Give some examples.
Do you think other areas of pop culture are “making room”? Think perhaps about movies, books, songs, TV, etc.
Why does Netflix release this ad?
