Gender parity in the entertainment industry is not a given – recent news stories and campaigns have made that very clear. But sometimes the best way to address bad practice is to demonstrate good practice. So that is what this panel aims to do. In this session we will celebrate the many women who have succeeded in the animation business, by asking some of them to describe their journeys and how they have navigated any obstacles along the way. And we ask questions around equality and inclusion and share learnings from our sector. Centuries of conditioning may not change things overnight, but channelling positive examples of where it does work, certainly goes a long way to help nudge progress in the right direction.

This session begins with a presentation by changemaker Anna Hollinrake
