50/50: Rethinking the Past, Present & Future of Women and Power | 2019 Session

50/50 gives the 10,000 year history of gender + power β€” from setbacks and uprisings, to the bigger context of where we are today. Using her signature, cinematic-thought-essay style, Emmy-nominated filmmaker & founder of The Webby Awards Tiffany Shlain brings us on an electric ride to explore, where are we really on the greater arc of history of women and power? This session will kick-off by viewing this powerful 20 minute film. We will then discuss what it’s going to take to get to a #5050 world β€” not just politics and board rooms, but truly shifting the gender balance to be better for everyone.
