Last week, the Television Academy of Arts & Sciences hosted an insightful panel discussion with the entertainment industry’s top disability activists, actors, producers and creators. Titled “Representing Disability in Storytelling,” panelists included former MAA honorees and presenters RJ Mitte, Shoshannah Stern, Daryl Mitchell, Nic Novicki and Jonathan Murray.

“How do we make Hollywood more inclusive for people with disabilities on and off camera when 1 in 4 people in America have a disability but are represented by less than 3% of characters onscreen?” moderator Holly Robinson Peete posed to these influential changemakers.
