Yasmin Ruvalcaba | Panel Discussion
Yasmin joins Jane Vogel (Advance Gender Equity in the Arts), Lindsey Gardner-Penner and Brenda Jean Foley (The Bridge Initiative) for a panel discussion called "2020 Call To Action: What's On Your Calendar?"
About this session: Jane Vogel is bringing together a group of artists, activists, and organizations that have an action plan for advancing gender equity in theatre. AGE is planning a partnership/coalition project that links arts organizations together in their equity efforts. The goal of this session is to embrace and support efforts and actions that help birth a new gender-balanced cultural paradigm. We will brainstorm and disseminate ideas, link and leverage assets, network, and mobilizing resources.
