Yesterday a really important event took place, the Gender Equality Summit. Questions and ideas of how to make the entertainment industry gender equal, 50/50 by 2020. Many speakers and 3 panels during the day, discussing the issues in the industry. It was so interesting listening to all these people, with so much experience, talk about this. I was so impressed by Anna Serner, the CEO of the Swedish Film Institute. After all the panels and guest speakers Gudrun Giddings the president of SACC-LA ended the event. Early evening some us the people were invited to continue the discussion and ask questions at the Elyx house in Hollywood. The organisation SWEA Los Angeles was one of the sponsors of the event and the president Minna got an opportunity to talk about the film scholarship SWEA Los Angeles hands out every year. A great scholarship to apply for if you are a Swedish citizen and have previous education within the industry.
