Dame Changer to host panel of leading female creatives

Women’s collective Dame Changer will host an International Women’s Day event tomorrow evening in Sydney, to mark the organisation’s first anniversary.

The event aims to “celebrate successful women from all areas of professional screen activity who make us feel empowered every day”, and will see a range of panelists share insights on the industry and tackle stereotypes of successful women.

Speaking will be director Gillian Armstrong, cinematographer Bonnie Elliott, actress Shari Sebbens, editor Dany Cooper, composer Caitlin Yeo and executive producer Que Minh Luu. The event will be MC’d by actress and writer Megan Wilding.

Dame Changer advisory board member and Ausfilm CEO Debra Richards said: “We are more powerful together each and every day and we need to celebrate women who empower, inspire and keep us going each of those every days.”

Dame Changer was formed on International Women’s Day in 2018 to run programs designed to build women’s business skills, professional knowledge and commercial confidence. It aims to grow awareness of gender bias and aims to break down the barriers to career growth being experienced by mid-career screen industry women.
