Join us as we engage a panel of distinguished leaders from the fields of entertainment, psychology, law, business, social justice, and education in a discussion that includes solutions to the current inequities from casting to directing that shape what we see on the big and small screens. Entertainment media shapes who we are. It is that simple. Whether one compares the increasing support of marriage equality to the number of LGBT characters on television, or the objectification of women in our society to the sexualization of female characters across all media, it is clear that the images we see every day - including those that are fictional - compel our thoughts and behaviors en masse. The afternoon will conclude with honoring a select few courageous heroes who advance the cause in their everyday lives.

SAG-AFTRA member Amy Pietz will deliver the keynote address. Panelists include representatives from SAG-AFTRA, International Black Women’s Film Festival, Media Action Network for Asian Americans, San Francisco Conservatory of Music, San Francisco State University, Stanford University, and more.
