For Hollywood executives trying to fix the industry’s diversity problem, producer and actor Gloria Calderon Kellett has a simple piece of advice: just do it--even if it means you have to work through your own discomfort.

Hollywood has been brought to its metaphorical knees by the pandemic. Production has stopped. Easy funding has dried up. Audiences are holed up and anxious.
