Leading the Way: Empowering Women's Leadership in the Screen Industries

Public Forum with Film Victoria and Monash University

ACMI, Thursday 21st February, 3pm (120 mins)

Partnering with Film Victoria and Monash University, "Leading the Way: Empowering Women's Leadership in the Screen Industries” engages with the Melbourne Women in Film Festival 2019’s theme of empowerment through storytelling, career building and … leading the way. Research has suggested that women in positions of leadership in the screen industry not only redresses the current gender imbalance, but also broadens the diversity of screen stories. Yet, why is the industry not seeing a significant advancement of women in these positions?

This free public forum brings together screen experts and industry leaders for a timely discussion of this complex issue. What are the broad issues concerning leadership development for women across different areas of the industry? What are the development pathways for women towards positions of leadership? This forum aims to consider these questions and more.

Registration required.

Panellists announced soon.
