S03E02: “Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media”

Media directly impacts how people see themselves in the world. In this episode, host Candice Bloch has a conversation with Madeline Di Nonno, the president and CEO of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media. They chat about the Institute’s mission, the valuable research and data they collect, and how that data is used to help reveal bias and create more equality. While it began with a focus on gender – “if she can see it, she can be it” – the Institute now focuses on gender, race/ethnicity, LGBTQIA+, disability, age 50+, and body type. Listen to hear more about the progress that’s been made in representation, and areas that still need to see improvement.
