@kait_lines: What advice do you have for other women in the industry?

Ask for what you want. If you think you’re ready for that promotion start telling people that’s a position you want to step in to. Wanting a raise at work? Make a list of the things you feel you’ve gone above and beyond in and negotiate that raise. I’m currently working on a show with an all female animation supervisor team, sitting side by side in an office full of amazingly organized, talented and passionate women who are all here because they weren’t afraid of stepping up and saying they were the right person for the job. I feel like a lot of young women are taught to be overly cautious and hesitant about speaking up lest it seem like they’re bragging or overstepping in some way, but I’d really like to encourage my fellow female artists to speak up and believe in themselves.
