The dearth of women working in film industry leadership is on par with that of women in the tech world. This full day of networking events, dis- cussions, and master classes explores compelling issues such as entrepreneurship, mentorship and inclusivity and how to sustain a productive, creative career in these innovative and intersecting fields. Join an incredible group of filmmakers, business leaders and other trailblazers in these communities as they come together to tackle the lack of gender parity.
