Raising Our Voices: Combating Sexual Harassment in the Film Industry
In an effort to address the current topic of sexual harassment in the industry, we will present a range of personal and professional perspectives, highlight the potentially problematic behaviors that might be involved in harassment, and make people aware of best practices and resources for preventing and/or addressing such situations. We may also discuss whether there are special considerations in Las Vegas, a city which has called attention to female sexuality as part of its entertainment model.
