08 Jan Diversity Woman statement on Times Up and Golden Globes ceremony
At last night’s Golden Globes ceremony, Hollywood came together in an extraordinary and historic way. The attendees wore black and sported a “Times Up” pin in support of the new initiative created by hundreds of women in Hollywood to fight sexual harassment and misconduct throughout the country. A dozen of the most prominent honorees brought as their plus one a leader in the fight against sexual harassment, which is one of the contributing factors to the glass ceiling and barriers to equity for women in the workplace.
At Diversity Woman Magazine we were thrilled and proud to see this work we have been fighting for over the last 10 years to be front and center on the national stage. We encourage you to read our upcoming winter 2018 cover story on Cheryl Boone Isaacs, the former head of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science, and one of the pioneers in the fight for parity and equity for women in the industry.
We would also like to congratulate Darla Anderson, senior producer at Pixar Animation Studios, the 2013 recipient of Diversity Woman Magazine’s Mosaic Woman Trailblazer Award, awarded annually to extraordinary leaders for their unique vision and leadership, and their global impact. Last night The Hollywood Foreign Press Association awarded Pixar’s “Coco” a 2018 Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature. “Coco,” was produced by Darla K. Anderson and is the first Pixar creation to be centered on a Mexican cultural celebration.
Diversity Woman looks forward to our continuing role in supporting women of all races, ethnicities, religions, and economic strata in the quest to make the workplace—and the world—a more inclusive place, where everyone is treated with the dignity and respect we all deserve.
