Writers Guild West Appoints Producer Kimberly Myers Director of Diversity
LOS ANGELES -- The Writers Guild of America, West (WGAW) has announced the appointment of producer/development executive Kimberly Myers as the guild's new Director of Diversity, effectively immediately.
“We are pleased to welcome Kimberly to the guild to help strengthen our already solid efforts to increase employment access for all kinds of talented writers, no matter the gender, race, age, sexual orientation, or disability,†commented WGAW Executive Director David Young. “Kimberly's multi-faceted background will help the guild focus not only on working with the entertainment industry to create real opportunities for such worthy writers, but also enforce protected class provisions in our current MBA to help those under-employed and potentially excluded writers raise their authentic voices.â€
In addition to designing, developing, and implementing a slate of programs and activities to increase employment access for protected-class writers, including older writers, female writers, writers of color, gay and lesbian writers, and disabled writers, Myers will liaise with production companies, producers, networks, and studios to promote a higher profile for writers of diverse backgrounds. Besides supervising the guild's many member-driven diversity committees, Myers will serve as primary representative and spokesperson for the WGAW in areas of affirmation action and employment access.
