Diversity in storytelling is an unavoidable factor in the movement for equality, as is inclusivity in any other field. Netflix attempts to call attention to this with its latest campaign which is aptly titled 'Make Room' and is created by Portland-based agency Red & Co.
The video is shared on Netflix's social platforms and it spotlights Uzo Aduba who plays Suzanne Warren in the streaming service's hit show 'Orange is the New Black.' The campaign strongly promotes diversity in storytelling by advocating for greater inclusion of writers, actors, producers, and directors in color within the parameters of the Netflix platform.
The 'Make Room' campaign is a wake-up call for a specific portion of the creative industry that has recently seen hopeful breakthroughs of inclusive practices.
