Empathize, Connect, Create: Healing Post-#MeToo

Holding personal boundaries and fulfilling roles in creative production can quickly become challenging even for the most attuned humans. Balancing personal embodiment and creative expression at work can take a project’s meaning to a higher level of consciousness, but rigidity in the traditional workplace can stifle and isolate. #Metoo is a key moment of opportunity to better understand the role of emotions and intimacy in the workplace. This panel brings together the foremost experts on personal and professional intimacy in Silicon Valley and Hollywood to discuss their work in eradicating shame while increasing empathy, emotional literacy, conflict resolution skills, and holistic self-expression to enhance connection, creativity, and efficiency in the entertainment industry and beyond.
