Starting out as a Facebook group, the community expanded and its members helped shaping it into an inspiring platform to exchange knowledge and support. Encouraged by the support and a need of a community like this, the next step was putting together a directory that makes it easy for anyone to get a hold of underrepresented talent. No more excuses for cis men-only studios, speaker line-ups and director rosters. Diversity exists, it's got skills and it's here!
