Being a TV writer in California can certainly present many interesting and rewarding opportunities. However, diverse writers working in the television industry may not have such a positive attitude about this profession, according to the results of a report prepared by a group of working TV writers and a therapist. The report found that more than 60 percent of writers who are women, non-binary, LGBTQ, people of color or individuals with disabilities experienced discrimination, bias and/or harassment.
A group called Time's Up Healthcare will aim to resolve issues related to harassment and discrimination that workers in California and elsewhere may face. It will try to accomplish this goal in part by seeking greater gender balance among health care leadership. This group is similar to the Time's Up movement that was inspired by the #MeToo movement that played a role in bringing awareness to gender issues in Hollywood.
