Across industries, stories of successful female leaders share a common thread: the profound impact that mentors, particularly female mentors, have had in helping them overcome adversity in their professions. Yet finding a female mentor, or even a role model, is not always a simple task, particularly in male-dominated fields like science, engineering, and technology. In the arts, too, women are underrepresented—and underpaid—in key leadership positions like museum directorships.
Artsy begins to tackle this issue in a series of short films profiling extraordinary women in art and tech who are defining what it means to be a leader in 2018. Each of these visionaries has broken the glass ceiling, overcoming biases and obstacles to pave a way in her field. They now use their platforms to champion the voices of other women. Together, they are empowering the next generation to shape the future of their industries.
