“Kids need to see entertainment where females are valued as much as males.”
– Geena Davis, Founder and Chair,
Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media
The Institute’s Global Symposiums on Gender in Media convene decision makers from around the world invested in women’s empowerment to review the Institute’s most current research findings and collaboratively create change.
Our 2015 and 2016 Global Symposiums unveiled the Institute’s global research on the impact of cinema on global audiences in France, Brazil, Britain and India. These custom events were presented in partnership with Google and the Oak Foundation in London, Rio and Mumbai.
In fall 2016, we held Global Media Symposiums in partnership with Google in NY and LA to debut our new groundbreaking Media Measurement Research Software and our first findings which analyze gender, screen and speaking time. The research was funded by Google and created by the Institute at University of Southern California’s Signal Analysis and Interpretation Laboratory (SAIL). This is the only tool in existence with the ability to measure variables using face and audio automation. Results from this revolutionary data tool were subsequently shared to members worldwide.
Our 2017 Global Symposiums are in development. As in the past, our target will be creators, change makers and thought leaders in the entertainment. media and technology verticals, corporations and NGOs – all committed to the empowerment of women and girls. We will engage and educate the community about our latest findings and to share best practices in order to drive dramatic change to the content that our children are consuming.
