“Breaking Bad” actor RJ Mitte will discuss inclusivity in the media industry for people of all abilities at noon on March 23 in the Compton Union Building junior ballroom.

In his keynote speech, Mitte will share his thoughts on how the entertainment industry can accurately portray people with cognitive, speech, developmental and mobility disabilities, according to the Access Center website. On and off-screen inclusivity resonates with Mitte because both he and his character on the show, Walter White Jr., have cerebral palsy. 

Mitte will hold a meet and greet with attendees after his speech at 1 p.m., according to the Access Center.  

The Access Center is hosting the speech as a part of its Disability Awareness Event Series. Further details about the events are listed on the Access Center’s website.
