Think Tank for Inclusion & Equity (TTIE)

The THINK TANK FOR INCLUSION & EQUITY (TTIE) is a consortium of working TV writers spanning baby writers to showrunners, from various backgrounds and working across various segments of the TV industry (Network/Cable/Digital, Drama/Comedy, Animation, etc.). TTIE is committed to increasing inclusion and improving working conditions for all writers, in particular those from diverse backgrounds. In 2018, TTIE became a grantee of the Pop Culture Collaborative and a collaborative project of Women In Film.

MISSION

As working TV writers in the business, we know firsthand the challenges faced by TV writers at all stages of their careers, especially those faced by a broad spectrum of diverse TV writers (i.e. women, people of color, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and people with disabilities).

Through thoughtful research and analysis, strong community partnerships and collaborations, and the support of educational programming and initiatives, we hope to change working conditions and steer the culture of the television industry towards a safer, more inclusive, and equitable reality.
