TUESDAY, 
AUGUST 3, 2021
 

Join us online August 3rd for this premiere event, conversation with acclaimed panelists, and launch of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media’s new groundbreaking research study: I Am Not a Fetish or Model Minority: Redefining What it Means to be API in Entertainment.

This inaugural study investigates Asian and Pacific Islander (API) representation in 100 popular films — the 10 top-grossing domestic films from each year between 2010-2019 — along with a landmark survey of API entertainment content creators. This study will provide critical insights to drive progress for more authentic representations.
