We are thrilled to be bringing our See Jane Salon Program to Chicago!

Please join us for an inspiring conversation led by a panel of entertainment industry leaders on the importance of intersectional media portrayals.

By the year 2020, more than half of the nation’s children are expected to be part of a minority group. By the year 2044, no one racial or ethnic group will dominate in the U.S in terms of size.

This panel will explore best practices for addressing unconscious bias in media representations, the challenges faced by people who belong to multiple marginalized groups, and what we can do to achieve a more inclusive media landscape.
