Women of Action: Breaking Boundaries in the Business of Creativity

Hosted by J. Walter Thompson New York

Historically, there has been a singular approach to creating media and content; as a result, women rarely receive opportunities to drive non-stereotypical categories or products like news, horror and action. Our panel will discuss how women have successfully broken through these traditional barriers of genre, product category and industry, to reinvent the visual and cultural world we live in, offering a fresh perspective. Panelists will share their story hoping to inspire a new generation of female creators to break into more unexpected spaces and bring their own vision into the world.
