BFFoundation is a nonprofit focused on promoting the underrepresented voices of these diverse storytellers. They stand for the voices of female, non-binary, LGBTQA+, BIPOC, API and persons with disabilities in entertainment and media through research, education, and supporting the production and distribution of inclusive content. Their goal is to create seismic change in how media inspires young minds to do great things.
The mission is to champion inclusion in all aspects of entertainment media. BFF’s primary objective is to influence mainstream media to immediately increase diversity in the content that is produced and distributed because if they can see it, they can be it.
By supporting the achievements of diverse storytellers, and connecting them with entertainment leaders and major corporate changemakers, BFF's strives to accelerate the production and distribution of inclusive content to accurately reflect the world we live in.
Along with the Geena Davis Institute of Gender in Media, BFFoundation also partners with schools and community institutions to educate the challenging effects of stereotyping, unconscious bias, and representation imbalance of gender, ethnicity, sexuality, and persons with disabilities.
