Director Ava DuVernay sat down with Fast Company at the Fast Company Innovation Festival on Wednesday to speak about diversity in Hollywood.
DuVernay first admits that she doesn't like the word diversity and prefers inclusion. "It's come to stand for something thats very medicinal and its an obligation. I think its a word that's tossed around that's not fully understood."
"When we’re talking about diversity, it’s not a box to check," DuVernay says. "It is a reality that should be deeply felt and held and valued by all of us."
