"Lost" Writers a Diverse Bunch

More nods to "Lost" for promoting diversity in the very white Hollywood workplace. An article by Dinah Eng for Gannett recently illustrated how the "Lost" writing staff collaborates, and revealed that of 10 writers total, two are women, two are Asian American, and one is Latino. At 20% female and 30% minority, this writing staff is one of the most diverse in Hollywood. One "Lost" writer who is both female and minority is Christina Kim, a film school grad and alumna of the CBS Diversity Institute Writers Mentoring Program, who contributes most to storylines involving Jin and Sun, and budding romances among other characters.
