Kerry Washington and the New Rules of Social Stardom

Sunday, March 13
11:00AM - 12:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Ballroom EFG
531 E 4th St

A one-on-one discussion with Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actor, producer, philanthropist, and role model Kerry Washington about the new rules of modern personal branding. Kerry will be chatting with InStyle's Editorial Director Ariel Foxman about how she has successfully harnessed the power of social media to promote not only her career and hit TV Show, Scandal, but also positivity and social good. How has social media impacted traditional media's representation of diversity and beauty? How does one remain in dialogue with fans, yet maintain privacy? What lessons has she learned about filtering reactions on social media and staying confident and true to her voice?
