More than 60% of animation students in college are women, yet they make up less than 20% of animation creatives in the workplace. While the industry is beginning to address this disparity and become more inclusive, there are still remnants of the long-existing “boys club.” In this discussion, we'll talk about animation and the challenges of being a woman in a male-dominated pipeline.


About the Diverse Perspectives in Digital Media & Design: 2021 Speaker Series: To paraphrase James Baldwin, nothing can be changed until it is faced. This is certainly true of the inequities that have historically shaped digital media content, fields, and careers. Join UConn’s Digital Media & Design department in welcoming industry professionals, artists, and media scholars from film, game, design, cultural and other sectors to discuss how issues of equity manifest in their work, creative processes, and professions, allowing us to reflect on how our own practice can support greater equity, diversity, and inclusion.
