Women in Post Update
2016 was an incredible year for HPA’s Women In Post. Among many activities and goals this year, WIP brought a long-held dream for a mentorship program to fruition with the launch of Young Entertainment Professionals (YEP.) Under the tutelage of Kari Grubin, Loren Nielsen, Belinda Merritt and Laura Thommen, WiP launched the Young Entertainment Professionals during SMPTE’s Annual Conference, helping the HPA build the architecture of mentorship. WiP, in collaboration with SMPTE, hosted the Women In Technology luncheon during the Annual Conference. This year, the WiT luncheon presented an intriguing conversation with one of the industry’s most influential women, Marvel’s Victoria Alonso. Attendees benefitted greatly from Ms. Alonso’s candid sharing of her experiences and insights.
Looking forward, WIP will soon announce the date for the annual Women In Post Tech Retreat Luncheon.
