You can read about Film Powered as featured in Forbes here.

Film Powered was created to increase the skills and strengthen the contacts of and relationships between our members in an effort to address gender parity in the industry. Think of it as a cross between MeetUp and LinkedIn but specifically for women in the biz. As our industry is finally making concrete moves toward gender parity, especially after #MeToo and awareness of inclusion riders, Film Powered is becoming the go-to place for employers to post jobs looking for women.

When women connect, we change the world! Welcome to Film Powered!
