They have made great strides to change the landscape of media and programming to reflect a more accurate, gender balanced, diverse portrayal of society.

Kids need to see entertainment where females are valued as much as males.
"
– GEENA DAVIS
In family films, there’s only 1 female character for nearly every 3 male characters. For a well-balanced adventure, just add girls.

As L.A.'s only women's university, we are thrilled to partner with Geena Davis to create research that influences opportunities for women in media.

No one has done more to bring strong, complex and truly inspirational female characters to both large and small screens.

We are so grateful and excited!! #IfSheCanSeeitSheCanBeit

With the support of the LA2050 My Grants Challenge, the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media at Mount Saint Mary's University recently launched our new Empowering Girls & Creating a Gender-Balanced Media Landscape program. This program provides scholarships for 50 girls from across Los Angeles to attend the Institute's See Jane Salon series, quarterly events that engage entertainment industry professionals and corporate influencers in discussions on achieving greater gender equity in media. In addition to attending the salons, scholarship recipients will also have the chance to take part in other special mentoring programs and opportunities over the course of one year.

We partnered with local peer organizations, including the Fulfillment Fund, Urban Fitness 911, DIY Girls, LA Makerspace, and Steamcoders, to help spread the word and reach a diverse group of young women.

As the Empowering Girls & Creating a Gender-Balanced Media Landscape program progresses, three more salons are planned for August, November, and February. Additionally, a program featuring a speed mentoring session with a range of entertainment industry professionals is scheduled for early September.
