The THINK TANK FOR INCLUSION & EQUITY (TTIE) is a consortium of working TV writers, comprised of BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, Disabled, and Women writers spanning lower-level writers to showrunners. TTIE is committed to creating more opportunities for accurate and authentic storytelling, as well as increasing inclusion and improving working conditions for all TV writers, in particular those from underrepresented communities. TTIE is a grantee of the Pop Culture Collaborative and a collaborative project of WIF.
TTIE knows first-hand the challenges faced by a broad spectrum of underrepresented TV writers (Women, BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, People with Disabilities) at all stages of their careers. Through thoughtful research and analysis, strong community partnerships and collaborations, and educational programming and initiatives, we aim to change the culture of the entertainment industry to promote better working conditions, the advancement of underrepresented writers, and more accurate and authentic storytelling.
