The biggest little secret nowadays is the heart of Imaginal Labs mission and is the backbone of its initiatives and workshops: gender parity promises more for all.

In 2015, Rob and Carolyn were delighted to be the designers of that 2-day “secret meeting” that was sponsored by Sundance and Women in Film LA to figure out the path to gender parity in Hollywood with a goal of getting more women behind the camera.

“The road to gender parity, particularly in the incestuous and tangled ecosystem which is Hollywood, was never going to be a straight line. However, a good design that rallies leaders is a great start,” Carolyn Buck Luce recently commented.  

We were delighted to see that, eighteen months later, the ReFrame Campaign was launched. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/frame-campaign-will-tackle-gender-inequality-hollywood-977555  

As reported in the Hollywood Reporter, 50 Hollywood leaders and influencers, including studio heads, agency partners, senior network executives, talent and guild representatives have come together with Women In Film and Sundance Institute to create a formal action plan to further gender parity in the media industry.

Instead, according to new research from the Center for Talent Innovation (CTI), the fundamental issue is the health care industry’s failure to develop a nuanced understanding of, and commitment to, women as consumers and decision makers.

Power of the Purse: Empowering women to power health outcomes

2012 WOTY Carolyn Buck Luce and a panel of experts are set to discuss the impact of the SHEconomy on healthcare at this year’s HBA Annual Conference.

By now, you’ve likely heard of the SHEconomy — the phenomenon of women earning, owning, controlling and influencing trillions of dollars in the global economy.
