NDI & NYWIFT Presents: Representation Matters

March 24, 2021 @ 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM


National Democratic Institute & New York Women in Film & Television Present:
Representation Matters: Ensuring Inclusive Leadership in Politics and the Media

Join NDI & NYWIFT for this incredible panel that will focus on addressing the power imbalances and gender gap in politics and the media caused by excluding and biased representation. These often male-dominated mechanisms – e.g. media production hiring practices and party candidate selection committees – mean that women are shut out of the storytelling and policymaking processes, therefore they are not in control of their own narrative and empowerment. A globally representative panel of political leaders, media experts and producers will be asked to discuss why representation matters, and provide examples of initiatives across the media and politics which promote a more diverse and intersectional environment.

Speakers include Sheila Nevins, Executive Producer at MTV Networks and other media and political leaders to be announced.

Please register at least 24 hours prior to the event.
