|Bisha K. Ali is a screenwriter, director and producer. Her focus is on amplifying marginalised voices in TV and Film.
Her credentials are impressive: Head writer/executive producer of the Marvel Studios' Ms. Marvel series; consulting on an upcoming HBO & Sky series; writer for Four Weddings and a Funeral, Sex Education, and more big names.
Now she's working with Netflix to increase the diversity of their programming.
|"Give us some of the purse-strings", she says, referring to marginalised groups who are gatekept out of the industry.
Bisha focuses on how the personal power she has can change things from within. She mentors other creatives, and advocates from them, providing that sense of recognition and visibility they lack.
It is up to the gatekeepers however to give POC and minority groups the creative power that will change the industry. Bisha is optimistic.
