Welcome to WGAW Inclusion and Equity

The WGAW's Inclusion and Equity Department works with producers, studio and network executives, and writers to increase employment opportunities and the availability of writing assignments for writers from under-represented groups, including, but not limited to, writers who are Asian/Pacific Islander, Native American & Indigenous, African-American, Latino, women, over 40, LGBTQ+, or disabled, so they have the opportunity to tell stories from their various life experiences on-screen.


Employers may search for WGAW members according to self-identified attributes.
