Mirrors and Windows: Why Kids Need to See Themselves Reflected in the Media They Watch
Wednesday, August 26, 2020 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET
Media has a huge impact on how kids perceive themselves and the world around them. And while the movement to challenge stereotypes and make kids' media more inclusive and diverse has been gaining momentum, many children still don't see themselves reflected on-screen. Today, as racial and social injustice in our country reaches a fever pitch, creating and updating media that celebrates diversity and inclusion has never been more pressing.
Please join Common Sense and the Children's Media Association for a conversation with creators and children's media experts to explore where we are and what we're producing. Where can kids find "stuff like me"? How can creators produce engaging and authentic content? What are tips and resources to help parents find this great media?
