Aspire to Lead is designed to educate ambitious and knowledge-seeking adults entering the workforce, in the early stages of their career, or those looking for their next role. The third annual global Aspire to Lead webcast is broadcast from Hollywood, CA. The role of gender and leadership in the media and workplace is explored with speakers such as Geena Davis, Co-Founder of the Bentonville Film Festival and Founder of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, Dawn Hudson, CEO of the Academy, Jennifer Yuh Nelson, Academy Award nominee and director, and Peter Yobo, Advisory Senior Associate from PwC’s US business. After watching segments of the broadcast, students interacted with a PwC panel to ask questions about the professionals’ personal experiences in the workplace as well as advice for the future.
