A major survey calls for entertainment industry-wide change after revealing that less than half of all respondents (49%) believe diversity and inclusion are core industry values.

The Hollywood Commission report released Thursday further broke down the numbers to show the disparity of thinking between gender and race. For example, 63% of white men said they saw people in the industry welcoming and valuing diverse backgrounds often, compared with 42% of white women and only 27% of Black women.

The findings come with the second part of the industry-wide worker survey, released by the Anita Hill-chaired Hollywood Commission. The report reveals significant differences in perceptions and experiences of bias and inclusion, with the findings urging the industry to make an organizational commitment to diversity.

From designers to Anna Wintour, fashion industry leaders say they are determined to improve diversity. How will we know whether they’ve succeeded?

In May, after the death of George Floyd while in police custody, activists poured into the streets with demands for racial justice and police reform. That multiethnic chorus expanded into a call for equity in every corner of the culture, from politics to fashion. In response, social media was quickly flooded with fashion companies, influencers and boldface names touting their support of Black Lives Matter with symbolic black squares and historical quotations about racial equality.
