Every March 8, we recognize International Women’s day – a day dedicated to celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievement of women around the world. Women and men gathered across various WarnerMedia properties to observe the day, dressed from head to toe in purple and doing their part to #balanceforbetter.
One of the events highlighted some very powerful women and influencers from across the WarnerMedia portfolio on how women are faring in the media & entertainment industry. Check out the discussion below.
