On Dec. 11, The Hollywood Reporter held its annual Women in Entertainment breakfast at Milk Studios in Los Angeles. The annual gala, now in its 28th year, honors the most influential women in entertainment and music. Several members of SAG-AFTRA’s leadership, including President Gabrielle Carteris, were in attendance.
In addition to sponsoring of the event, SAG-AFTRA contributed more than 40 bookbags with school supplies and union swag to the 2019 participants of THR’s mentorship program. The program, done each year in partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles, pairs young teens with some of Hollywood’s most influential women. Carteris as well as SAG Awards® Executive Producer Kathy Connell were mentors this year.
“Supporting such an important program that mentors young women and helps them to realize their full potential and power reminds us all that opportunity is everything. It changes lives one person at a time, but never alone.”
