¡Adelante Mujer! Breaking Barriers And Achieving Gender Parity In Animation

In the US and Latin America, women and women-identifying people make up anywhere from 70 to 80 percent of animation students. However only about 30 percent — and in some cases as few as 20 percent of professionals working in animation identify as women. What are the systemic and internalized barriers that prevent women from reaching their potentials within the industry? What can be done about it? This panel will discuss some reasons for this disparity and how we can close the gap.
