In her talk, Claire explores the impact of intentional diversity in her childhood and how it has shaped her experience working in the film and media industry. Claire Liu (she/her/hers) is a senior at Tufts double majoring in Child Study & Human Development and Classics, with a minor in Entrepreneurship. She’s excited to talk about diversity in children’s media and how it can build empathy, especially as we are in the midst of a racial reckoning. Currently, Claire works at GBH for the children’s department where she assists with the production of shows Arthur, Molly of Denali (the first nationally distributed children’s series with an Indigenous heroine!), and Pinkalicious and Peterrific. Her senior thesis and GBH project dives into how producers of children’s television go about intentionally and respectfully represent BIPOC groups through their shows and peripherals. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
