Description"Women received just 21.6% of all VFX credits across the top 400 grossing films from 2016 to 2019, according to a new report titled Invisible in Visual Effects" developed by Stacy L. Smith, the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative and Women in Animation. Considering this research and to create more equity, diversity and inclusion at DNEG, a global mentorship program was created. To accelerate talent and cultivate diversity, the Pilot program in Vancouver focused on women and underrepresented team members. In this interactive discussion, the panelists will share how to build a global mentorship program, the lessons learned from the Pilot, and authentic stories from one of our mentees and mentors.
