This interdisciplinary speaker series explores the ways in which the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI) have enabled women around the globe to be empowered and develop innovative ways to address the challenges they face. The speakers will discuss how they have utilized creativity and cultural forms (including art, film, literature, theater, comics, and photography) to challenge the social order and become leaders and innovators in their fields.
