INTERSECTIONALITY IS A PRIORITY

Diane J. Wright is a Canadian-American story consultant and ghostwriter focusing on diversity in inclusion and authentic representation of the BIPoC, neurodiverse, and disabled communities in features and series.

ABOUT

Diane lives at a culture crossroads. Her perspective of being simultaneously and separately Black and white, privileged and marginalized, extraordinary able and disabled, informs her work as a writer, advocate, and advisor.

Her mission? To use her powers for good, not evil, in making commercial stories mirror more of the world.

Her work in independent feature film has contributed to prizes at premiere festivals such as Sundance and Tribeca. She has been a trusted Telefilm-approved story editor, a studio development assistant, contributed to nationally released features, to series airing on network and cable, and to two New York Times bestselling non-fiction titles. She makes voices shine.

Outside the office, Diane is a baker, an animal lover, a former dot-com pioneer, national pageant queen, and roller derby bruise-giver (not all at the same time tho' how great would that be?), a drag stan, and the founder of one of the largest global communities of invisibly disabled adults.

People are more than female, Black, or disabled.
Shouldn't characters be too?
