Trust Women Conference

I've been invited to the Trust Women Conference by YouTube, and will be vlogging and livestreaming from the event.  

The Conference aims to empower women worldwide and fight modern day slavery. 

Trust Women is committed to find real solutions to empower women and to fight slavery worldwide. The annual event brings together global corporations, lawyers, government representatives, and pioneers in the field of women’s rights and anti-slavery.

The 2015 annual conference brought together 550 global leaders from 50 countries including Brazil, Australia, China, India, Kyrgyzstan and Switzerland. The two-day event reached 65 million people worldwide through extensive media coverage and highly interactive social media engagement.

Serialkon (Krakow, Poland)

 

I'm delighted to have been invited as a guest speaker at Serialkon, a Polish convention devoted to TV shows. In the spirit of most Polish sci-fi and fantasy cons, it's more similar to an academic conference, with papers and panels on a variety of subjects, which I'm very excited about as an academic nerd.

We're finalising the details soon, but I will be speaking about sexuality and diversity on TV, both in an individual presentation and some panels.
