Creative Industries 6

Who this event is for

  • Everyone




In conversation with producers, policy makers and sector leaders from the creative industries, Michele Paule will discuss how girls respond to the ways women leaders are represented in the media and how this deters girls from aspiring to be the leaders of the future. The panel will together identify the role of media gatekeepers in the potential solutions to the urgent problem of the gender leadership gap. Themes include scrutiny of appearance, racism, regional exclusion, being judged more harshly than men and, ultimately, risk of physical harm.
