Description

Developing your leadership voice as a woman of color can be challenging, but it can also be a rewarding journey of self-discovery with the potential to create meaningful impact. On May 15th, hear from expert leaders in media and the arts as they share their insights on navigating careers, race and gender representation in filmmaking, and the power of the arts to inspire change.

In this honest discussion, our panelists will be speaking from their extensive experience on the importance of mentorship, empowerment, and the confidence required to bring your most authentic self to each task and setting, even when that might make it difficult to fit in. They will also be sharing their 'head slapping' leadership failures and what they learned from these moments, as well as offering advice on the particular challenges that face women of color navigating today's complex landscape.
