Women in the Media Industries: Inputs & Influences
Mon 10 April 2017, 11:30 – 17:30 BST
This event focuses on women working in the media industries and how their inputs influence production processes and outputs – what we see on our screens and how they are made. We will be bringing together media professionals and academics to talk about their professional roles and practices, as well as to discuss their research on media industries that focus on gender and inequalities in cultural production industries. Research on creative and cultural industries reveals gendered patterns of disadvantage that establish themselves in areas such as recruitment, networking and work conditions. This event aims to address these issues and create a dialogue about the subject.
The event will revolve around panel discussions with the aim of developing exchange of ideas in a non-hierarchical set-up. We have a wonderful group of participants who are from a range of backgrounds (TV, radio, film and digital game design) and working in different capacities.
