Advisory Committee

“I don’t think directing is an easy road for anyone. It’s not for the faint of heart regardless of gender, but it is still so much harder for women. We do not have an equal playing field, and until we do, we have to keep pushing the door open. The time for talk is over, the time for change is now.”

Lesli Linka Glatter
Chair, Female Forward Advisory Council

The long-lasting impact that Female Forward will have on the careers of the program participants rests on building vocal advocates for their work within the industry. To foster that community, we’ve enlisted an advisory council of accomplished television directors – both male and female – who are dedicated to making meaningful change toward gender parity in our industry. Their investment in the Female Forward participants will help the directors cultivate successful careers.

Chaired by Lesli Linka Glatter, who has been a longtime mentor to women in the field, the advisory council will participate in the selection process, provide mentorship during the program and serve as advocates for the directors following the program.
