Beyond the Whisper Network: A Town Hall Discussion
An opportunity for us to come together to assess and analyze what can be done to encourage and ensure respectful environments.
In the wake of the online #MeToo movement, the screen industry vowed to implement policies and follow best practices to ensure the safety of women and non-binary people. Five years later, we’re checking in: this gathering is an opportunity for the community to come together to assess and analyze what’s changed, what hasn’t, and what can be done to encourage and ensure respectful environments. Led by a panel of professionals in the film, law, and advocacy industries, the town hall will also offer audience members a chance to speak about their experiences. Panellists: Martha Cooley, Dee Dooley, Laura Mackenzie, Nasha Nijhawan. Special guests: Alathea Milne-Hines, organizer of Toronto’s #MeToo march, and Paulette Senior, CEO and President of the Canadian Women’s Foundation.
