Broad City is huge, Amy Schumer is everywhere, Shonda Rhimes rules TV, and the Ghostbusters are now gals. More than ever before, women are a driving creative force in pop culture. Yet, in creative industries like entertainment, advertising and technology, challenges still endure. Hear Y&R New York CCO Leslie Sims and a panel of successful creative women discuss their experiences, and share their perspectives on how both women and men can better address the gender divide – and produce groundbreaking work! The panel will discuss questions like: What are the challenges faced by women in creative workplaces? Should we aim for a gender-neutral workplace, or are there benefits to celebrating our differences? How are female creatives affecting how women are portrayed in pop culture and advertising? Why do we exclude men from working on “women’s categories” in advertising? Most importantly… are we almost at the point where we can stop talking about all this?? View Less
