Women in Media: Lunch with Madeline Di Nonno
Fri. 2 December 2016, 12:15 pm – 2:00 pm AEDT
Women play a vital and celebrated role in our media and entertainment industries but much still needs to be done to improve gender balance, reduce sterotyping and create diverse female characters in entertainment.
Join us for a special event with one of the most dynamic women campaigning for change at a global level. Madeline Di Nonno is Chief Executive Officer of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media. Founded by Academy Award-winning actor Geena Davis, the institute is the only organisation working to improve gender diversity in entertainment through research-based programs.
Madeline Di Nonno has more than 30 years experience in media, marketing and business development in the entertainment, non-profit, digital media and consumer packaged goods industries. At our lunch she will outline how Hollywood is tackling sexism on screen and provide tips on how a similar approach could work in Australia.
