I have been making social-issue documentaries for the past 25+ years and recently completed a PBS doc called CURED about the activists who persuaded the American Psychiatric Association to remove the diagnosis of homosexuality from its manual of mental illnesses in 1973. I also co-authored a thriller (with three Harvard classmates!) called THE STUDENT BODY. I'd love to connect around ways in which films can be used as resources for DEI work; I'm also interested in sparking intergenerational dialogue among activists and in pursuing scripted adaptations of various projects (www.bennettsinger.com).

Now that I've finally landed one of those coveted, steady, sane jobs with the City of Los Angeles, I'm looking to do three big things outside of the work week: 1) Fight for democracy (using the tools I've picked up as an LGBTQ/Democratic Party activist and as a professor teaching civics/media literacy); 2) Put together a jazz trio and play some old American Songbook classics, with a sprinkling of originals, at events where it's relatively safe; and 3) Get my side hustle going, mainly with ghostwriting/speechwriting.

Career/field of interest:

I'm interested in connecting with people who have experience in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives. I'm currently a PhD Candidate at UC Berkeley in the departments of Ethnic Studies and Gender, Women, and Sexuality, finishing up my dissertation. With my experience considering the intersections of race, gender, and sexuality for BIPOC communities, I'm pivoting to DEI consulting work after graduation rather than academia. My current job at Lion's Roar focuses on promoting Asian American Buddhist writers and creators, and I really enjoy this type of work! I would love to learn more about DEI work in any industry.
