The Think Tank for Inclusion and Equity (ttie) are a consortium of working TV writers, comprised of BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, Disabled, and Women writers, spanning lower-level writers to showrunners.
ttie’s #writeinclusion factsheets are invaluable resources, developed collaboratively with the stated goal “to empower writers, showrunners, and creative executives to better reflect the lived experiences of marginalized communities.”
To help bridge the gaps between where we are and where we should be, TTIE and Storyline Partners have developed the #WriteInclusion: Tips for Accurate Representation project. These heavily researched and vetted factsheets are designed as a tool to guide storytellers through a number of mis- and underrepresented communities and issues. They call out harmful stereotypes and call in more inclusive, authentic narratives.
