Bryron Woods recently posted an article from Howl Round called Women’s Leadership: Research Results and Recommendations by Sumru Erkut and Ineke Ceder. It examines the latest data on women and diversity in the theatre community. It discusses reasons why women and minorities are under represented and things that can be done to rectify that situation. I found it particularly interesting that many of the women in leadership roles are there because they have created their own opportunity by starting their own company etc. The Festival was started for this very reason. Check out the article and their suggestions.
