Robia Rashid is the creator, executive producer and showrunner of the Netflix series Atypical. The show is changing perceptions about people with autism by allowing viewers to experience the witty, intelligent and caring person beyond the disability. For her commitment to creating a more inclusive world within the entertainment industry, we are thrilled to present the Visionary Media Leadership Award to Robia.
Lonnie Chavis stars as young Randall on NBC’s hit show, This Is Us. When Lonnie discovered that he was being bullied online, he responded with his #FixYourHeart campaign that promotes kindness and encourages people to “be who you want to be.” For taking a stand against bullying and being an inspirational role model to thousands of children, we are excited to shine a light on Lonnie with the Youth Advocacy Award.
