Her Conference and Stareable Fest: Recap
TLL founder, Kim Hoyos, here. Because of my work with the Light Leaks as well as independent film work, I get asked to moderate panels as well as speak on them for topics like: gender in media, representation in media, creativity, and community via the internet. This past weekend I had two speaking engagements related to women's media. I really love connecting with others on these topics and I feel like it is the perfect way to continue to get the news out about the work TLL does. Here's a quick summary.
Her Conference- Side Hustle Life, Her Campus, July 2018- Manhattan, NYC
I was on a panel alongside Aditi Juneja, Lily Herman, and Jill Hilbrenner at Her Campus' Her Conference to discuss Side Hustles. We talked about side hustles: how to have them, continue the passion, and monetize them. Her Campus is an online magazine targeted at the female college student demographic. It is the number one online magazine for college women.
Stareable Fest, Under Representation of Women in Media, July 2018- Manhattan, NYC
I moderated a panel for Stareable's Stareable Fest. The panel was sponsored by Bustle Digital Media Group and featured Abra Potkin, Head of Talent Relations and Strategy at Oath/Verizon, Daryn Strauss, WGA Award-winning filmmaker, creator of the web series Downsized, Keisha Zollar, independent comedy writer and tv writer, and Sinead Persaud, founder of Shipwrecked Comedy production company. The conversation focused on their careers and concrete ways for gender inclusivity in the industry.
