In the U.S., women of color hold only 4% of C-suite roles in media and entertainment. As a result, we rarely find their stories featured in films or T.V.
Growing up as a Muslim who wore a headscarf, Marya didn’t see herself represented on the screen. Yet, she found her way into Hollywood through a handful of pioneer women of color in the industry. As a vice-president at Walt Disney Studios, Marya is now advancing social change through diverse storytelling.
In this episode, we examine how stories shape and inform the world in which we live. We also explore how having women in leadership positions in media and entertainment is crucial in advancing diversity.
