(Recently presented as a panelist at the Pan African Film Festival’s 30th anniversary celebration.)
How can women rise through the ranks in male-dominated fields and spaces such as the entertainment—without falling prey to the tremendous pressure to compromise their boundaries, values, and ideals? It’s not just about weathering the hard times. Areva Martin delves into her own experiences with the Pan African American Film Festival Panel to share tools and strategies that can help women identify and connect with women and men who share their vision and will fortify their determination—and ultimately allow them to shine. This talk will transform the conversation for individual women, men looking to be allies, and industries as a whole.
