ELLEN POMPEO SAYS ‘AS CAUCASIAN PEOPLE, IT’S OUR JOB’ TO SPEAK ON THE LACK OF DIVERSITY

November 21, 2018

Not only is Ellen Pompeo known for her iconic role on Grey’s Anatomy, she’s also known for her unwavering activism and uncanny ability to call out societal issues. During a recent interview, she called out the production crew’s lack of diversity by requesting to see more “color in the room” that’s reflective of the “the world we see” everyday.
