HPA Women in Post and SMPTE Present:



Changing the Status Quo: Gender Bias in Media and Entertainment,

featuring Madeline Di Nonno of the Geena Davis Institute


Please join us Monday, 23 October from 12:30 - 2:00 pm

The Women in Technology Luncheon is hosted annually by the HPA Women in Post and SMPTE.


This year our guest speaker is Madeline Di Nonno, Executive Director of the Geena Davis Institute.


The research that The Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media performs, centers around how media portrays women and girls and how negative gender stereotypes influence cultural and social behaviors and beliefs.


Madeline will share the latest findings from Institute's new machine learning media metrics tool GD-IQ, Geena Davis Inclusion Quotient analysis of  the top family films of 2017.


Held in conjunction with SMPTE 2017, the luncheon will take place in the Vantage Room, on the 5th Level of the Hollywood & Highland Center.
