Symposiums on Gender in Media

Global Symposium 2018 Los Angeles

Our 6th Global Symposium on Gender in Media was held at Google Venice on April 23, 2018.

Don’t miss the debut of our latest GD-IQ (Geena Davis Inclusion Quotient) research which includes an in-depth analysis of the top 100 Family Films of 2017.

Our symposiums convene leading CEOs and decision makers in the entertainment industry, corporations, advertising and NGOs interested in the elimination of unconscious gender bias in family entertainment. The purpose of our symposiums is to engage and educate the industry about our latest findings and to also share best practices in order to drive dramatic change to the content that our children are consuming.
