Insights from the Women in Entertainment Summit

Updated: Mar 6



I recently had the privilege of attending the Women in Entertainment Summit in Los Angeles, and the experience left me feeling incredibly inspired and motivated. The summit brought together women from all corners of the entertainment industry to share their knowledge, experiences, and challenges. One particular message, delivered by Lala Anthony, struck a chord with me: the importance of creating and collaborating with the people around you.


Lala's words resonated deeply reminding me that our greatest source of inspiration often lies within our own circles. It was a powerful affirmation of the creative potential that exists when we come together and support other.


The summit reinforced the notion that as women in entertainment, we are not just participants in a male-dominated industry; we are the future architects of change. It highlighted the importance of staying connected and building supportive relationships to navigate the unique challenges we face.

For those who haven't yet attended, I highly recommend participating in events like the Women in Entertainment Summit and Women in Film LA. These organizations provide invaluable opportunities to connect with like-minded individuals, gain insights from industry leaders, and forge meaningful relationships that can propel our careers forward.


At its core, the summit emphasized the power of creativity as a force for change. It reminded us that our life experiences are a wellspring of inspiration for our art. Whether through film, music, writing, or any other form of expression, our stories have the power to shape narratives, challenge stereotypes, and drive social progress.


As I reflect on my own journey, I am reminded of the importance of advocating for gender equality and representation within the entertainment industry. It's not just about breaking barriers; it's about creating a more inclusive and equitable landscape where every voice is heard and valued.


I did take issue with the only Black panel being Black Mafia Familya show streaming on Starz. There were not enough African American writers on these panels. Yet I know so many writers on major shows that DO write about diverse African American/BIPOC experiences.


I am committed to using my platform to amplify the voices of women in entertainment. I will continue to share stories, insights, and experiences that uplift and empower others. Together, we can redefine the narrative and pave the way for future generations of women in entertainment.


I encourage all aspiring artists, creators, and industry professionals to embrace the power of collaboration, stay connected, and never lose sight of the transformative potential of our art.


Together, we can shape a future where women in entertainment thrive, inspire, and lead.

Let's create the change we wish to see.


I also met a group of cool young women and we had a blast in the Photo Booth.



Lets continue to lift and we rise,
