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


Forge supportive female networks—go to panels, talks and events that are specifically championing female talent or diversity. This way you automatically have one mission in common. You are going to be surrounded by women and likeminded creators that wish to and are tackling inequality in our industry. They are going to unconditionally open doors, make the introductions, mentor and support your work. You can bring your expertise and network to help in the same way. Always be prepared to push other females ahead of you. It directly makes your work environment fairer for you and for everyone. It’s these type of collaborations and mutual empowerment that will keep you going when it gets tough.
