According to CNN, Sesame Place released a statement that all employees will undergo diversity training:
“Initiatives include a comprehensive racial equity assessment, the development and implementation of an anti-bias training and education program, and enhancements to ensure a best-in-class diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) program.”
On July 16, the viral video of Jodi Brown’s daughter and niece being passed over and seemingly rejected by a beloved Sesame Street character caused other families to share similar videos. Last month, according to the Associated Press, a father named Quinton Burns filed a lawsuit against Sesame Place for racial discrimination.
