With a robust fall television season powering up, the Institute presented its latest GD-IQ machine learning tool insights for children’s television. This new analysis reveals that girls in lead and co-lead roles have achieved historic gender parity onscreen, however, this representation doesn’t extend to supporting characters in the same shows. Other findings focused on intersectionality and dimension will be presented, followed by a panel discussion featuring prominent children’s TV industry executives who will share best practices and case histories on how they are addressing representation in stories told through Family television.
