New WGC Diversity Committee

October 6, 2017

The WGC Council recently created a diversity committee to develop and implement initiatives supporting diverse screenwriters. The members of the committee are Penny Gummerson, Mark Ellis (Chair), Vivian Lin, Christin Simms, Marsha Greene,  Morwyn Brebner, Alejandro Alcoba, Jeremy Boxen, Nathalie Younglai, and Elan Mastai (pictured above).
The committee has begun to work on a number of initiatives that will be announced in the days to come. For now, the committee has asked that WGC members who wish to self-identify with the WGC as diverse (in order to participate in these initiatives) do so, confidentially, by emailing WGC Director of Strategy and Research Natalia Escobar at We look forward to sharing more details about the diversity initiatives as they become available.
