The Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media

Jan 02, 2008


LOS ANGELES, Dec. 28, 2007 - Academy Award-winner Geena Davis, Sony Entertainment Co-Chair Amy Pascal, Philanthropist Wallis Annenberg and ABC Entertainment President Stephen McPherson are scheduled keynote speakers at the exclusive Executives & Producers Luncheon and Forum of The Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media Conference 2008, to be held on January 30 at the InterContinental Hotel in Century City. 

This forum is part of a four-day international conference on gender in media, running January 28 -31 2008 at the University of Southern California (USC), hosted by the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media.  Funding is provided by the Annenberg Foundation.  The conference host committee includes Gerry Laybourne, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Oxygen Media, Lucy Fisher, Co-Head of Red Wagon Entertainment.

The conference is designed to increase awareness of gender imbalance in entertainment for kids and strategize toward more varied gender portrayal in entertainment media aimed at young children.

Ground-breaking research findings about aspirations and goals for girls in children's media will be revealed by Dr. Stacy Smith of the Annenberg School, at both at the January 30th Executives & Producers Luncheon and Forum, and at the Open Forum press conference on January 31.

Attendees to the Producers & Executives event on January 30 will be treated to a sneak preview of clips and materials from the Institute's Gender Balance PSA Contest and its upcoming I Want to See Jane Campaign.

At the Open Forum on January 31, WGA's Animation Writers Caucus head Craig Miller will moderate a panel entitled, " Giving Female Characters Goals".   Other sessions include a business panel, "The Toy-Product-Marketing-Kids' Media Link" and an educational/action panel, "How to Create a Cultural Shift". Additional panelists throughout the day include Heather Kenyon of the Cartoon Network, Doreen Spicer of the movie "Jump In," David Kleeman of American Center for Children and Media, and critics Brian Lowry of the TV Guide Channel and Variety, Celebrity Parade's Jeanne Wolf, and Entertainment Weekly's Mari Cartel.

The conference will also feature two days of International Researcher Workshops on January 28 and 29, featuring approximately 30 accomplished children's media researchers from around the globe and a panel open to the public on the evening of January 29.
