An invited panel of established and mid-career theatre artists (including actors, directors, playwrights, technicians, designers, and producers) will discuss their personal experience working in Boston theatre. Panelists will address their experience of gender bias, effective strategies they have seen or employed for handling it, and changes the Boston theatre community can make to even the playing field. After a question and answer session, audience members will suggest topics that they would like to explore in breakout sessions of pro-active idea sharing. The evening will close with a summation of all break-out sessions and plans for action.
Boston's Glass Proscenium continues GAN-e-meed's Career Labs, an essential program developed to address the specific challenges faced by women in theatre through skills workshops, panelists discussions, and community building.
