You’ll choose 2 breakouts on Saturday: 1 from Session A and 1 from Session B. When you’re not in your breakouts, you’ll be able to take a break for lunch and explore The Center, where over 150 organizations and businesses are hosting activations!

On Day Two, attendees will fan out across Los Angeles to attend skills-based trainings or Community Teach-In’s hosted by a range of organizations that are making change on gender equity in Los Angeles. Please keep an eye out for an email from your Day Two Host with location instructions.

Women are influencing and shaping the media more than ever before, but men are still positioned to tell more of the stories and decide which (and whose) stories get told. Add to that fake news, online trolls, and the harassment that follows women across platforms, and it’s clear that the mediasphere is still a challenging place for women to engage. During this candid conversation with leading mediamakers and influencers, we’ll explore their experiences and discuss how women can leverage our rising media prowess and power to change the field.
