#ETLVegas23 On-Demand: Diversity in AV productions

As a woman in Av for two decades I have been the ONLY woman on a tech crew for way too many years and way too many events over these years. This lack of representation of women sustains unequal and unjust power relations in decision-making. It is all about VISIBILITY, being present in spaces where important decisions are being made and where important things are discussed. It is about knowing that as a woman, you can hold a leading position of power, your work is valued in the same way as the work of men is valued, your presence matters, and you have equal chances of becoming, say a lead engineer, a technical director, a manager, a CEO, or whatever else your ambitious little heart desires, and you have as many opportunities and fair chances as men have.
