    Join WIFVNE Member Erica Brookhyser as she leads this WIFVNE Networking Wednesday session. Let's lift each other up, share resources, put forth ideas, provide feedback, and make connections.

    Many members are open to work, actively looking for freelance work, contemplating changing jobs, educating themselves, developing their passions, and planning for productions.

    It's estimated that upwards of 85% of job positions are filled through networking. But networks can be good for more than just hearing about employment opportunities. In this session, we'll talk about how we think about our networks, how we create and nurture those relationships, and ultimately how we use our connections to achieve fulfilling creative lives.

    Prior to this event, WIFVNE recommends that members update their Member Profile in the Member Directory, so connections can become collaborators! 

    Erica Brookhyser is an accomplished voiceover artist with over 15 years of performing experience. A trained opera singer, Erica completed her voiceover training at Edge Studio in New York. Her background in vocal performance, acting, teaching, and foreign languages brings extra versatility to Erica’s natural vocal richness. A sought-after VO for corporate videos and commercials, her client list includes The Washington Post, Nokia, Thomson Reuters, Thermo Fisher Scientific, and Johns Hopkins University among others. www.EricaBrookhyser.com

    Women Make Movies hosts a live discussion with Asian Women United! Panelists will be discussing how media representations of Asian women perpetuate a culture of anti-Asian hate and how independent film can help shift that narrative. The event will take place Thursday, April 22 at 4:00pm PT / 7:00pm ET and there is no cost to attend.

    Also! SLAYING THE DRAGON and SLAYING THE DRAGON: RELOADED, both which examine media representations of Asian and Asian-American Women, are available for free through April 23, 2021 in Women Make Movies' virtual screening room. Watch here.

    If you're thinking about a career change, you aren't alone. While it can be a daunting prospect (where do I begin? Who do I talk with? What about my resume?), it's absolutely doable. You'll hear from brilliant women who will be able to guide you toward making a successful transition.

    Topics we'll be covering:

    -- Figuring it Out - When is the right time? How do you skill up?

    -- Emotional/Mental Preparedness - How do you keep up the momentum mentally? How do you build confidence in transitioning to something new? Is a pay decrease always required when transitioning?

    -- Networking - Who should you reach out to? How do you network authentically?

    -- Advocating for your Needs - How do you discuss your preferences like remote work, flex work, salary? Does the transition mean you're starting from entry level?


    12:00pm-12:10pm: Networking! We’ll have table topics for people to virtually join, up to eight to a table

    12:10pm-1:30pm: Panel

    1:30pm-2:00pm: More networking!
