Warner Bros. Supports NALIP at 20th Annual Media SummitChanging the Narrative / Posted on July 29, 2019
New voices, experiences and viewpoints lead to our best stories, ones that are reflective and representative of our diverse audiences. As we deepen our commitment to diversity and inclusion here at Warner Bros., we understand that we can’t do it alone. As a company, we are committed to providing storytellers from all backgrounds with access to opportunities in our industry through programs and partnerships—like our recent partnership with the National Association of Latino Independent Producer (NALIP). This past week, we were honored to support NALIP at their 20th Annual Media Summit.
During the summit, WB Good worked alongside NALIP to present the Emerging Content Creators Workshop. This interactive two-hour workshop was designed for students and recent graduates as an informative guide for emerging creatives and professionals to successfully transition into the industry. Following the discussion, the emerging creators broke into small mentorship groups with selected industry professionals, including WB’s own Christine Davila, Creative Executive, Scripted at Stage 13. The workshop was a great way for young people to explore a career that they would not have considered because of the lack of exposure in their communities. Additionally, the Warner Bros. Talent & Acquisition team set up shop in the #WeAreInclusion Creators Lounge and engaged summit attendees in discussions about their career aspirations and potential career opportunities at Warner Bros.
Following the summit, we are delighted to continue our partnership with NALIP by sponsoring the Emerging Content Creators Workshop at the 2019 Latino Media Fest as well as supporting scholarships for the 2019 Diverse Women in Media Forum.
NALIP is a national membership organization that addresses the professional needs of Latinx content creators, regardless of the form or content of their work. The organization supports all Latinx creators and multiple visions of the Latinx experience within the local, national and international context.
