Come join Women in Post for a candid conversation about working in Entertainment Technology. Panelists Dalia Spingarn, Paramount Global, and Andrea Kalas, Paramount, along with moderator, Joanne Kim, Amazon will discuss how each of them landed in this field, what plays into their decisions about the technology they use, and what they see as current issues in tech. They’ll explore how to ensure today’s media plays well with formats to come for a greater ROI, and the enjoyment of content for future generations. This conversation will blend what we’re learning at the Tech Retreat with the reality of what these two professionals deal with on a day-to-day basis, what’s most relevant to them, and what we as technologists need to consider as we plan for the future.
Tech Retreat registration (All-Access or Wednesday) is required to attend. There will be no onsite registration.
