#MeToo, Now What? Looking beyond the hashtag

#MeToo, NowWhat will confront the dynamics and challenges of Film and Television in the wake of the #metoo movement. Panelists will have an honest dialogue focusing on underrepresented demographics, the deep complexity of discrimination extending far beyond a hashtag, and how film schools and introductory level programs should implement training to benefit equity in entertainment. It's time to build on the courage of survivors and their willingness to share their stories. In order to do this, our panelists will help lay out the necessary tools that every person can take in order to create change within the industry that extends beyond the social media sphere. Panelists will pull insights from their own experience as industry professionals and months of grassroots research in the field.
