Aspire to lead: PwC’s series on leadership and gender equality. Coming Feb 24 to a screen near you!

The event will begin at 5pm with appetizers and networking.  At 5:30pm, we will stream the webcast (recorded from Feb 17). The webcast will open with an inspirational keynote from Geena Davis on the empowerment and advancement of women.  Michael Fenlon, PwC Global Talent Leader, will then lead a panel discussion with Geena as well as Dawn Hudson, CEO of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Jennifer Yuh Nelson, Academy Award Nominee and Director, and Peter Yobo, PwC US Advisory Senior Associate, to examine the parallels between gender portrayals in the media and the role of women in the workplace. Through this panel discussion, attendees will receive insights on how to leverage lessons learned from the business of Hollywood and bring their career to center stage. As an Impact champion of HeForShe, we will explore how everyone has a role to play in the movement towards gender equality.  We will have a follow up panel discussion following the webcast viewing.
