From Variety:

America Ferrera talked about the diversity on her show, which is set in a fictional big-box retail outlet. The actress joined the series as a non-writing producer when she was cast. She noted that when she read the script, she was intrigued that her character and others were not written as any specific ethnicity.

"You get used to reading scripts where if there isn’t ethnicity specified, it defaults white,” she said. The show’s focus on diversity extends to the writers room. "You can’t make a show about working in a superstore with a room full of white guys from Ivy League schools. You can have some white guys from Ivy League schools, but not all.”
