When Women Thrive in Media and Entertainment

Mercer has expanded the When Women Thrive  platform to address the unique needs of the Media & Entertainment industry. Our mission is to increase the representation and advancement of women in the industry by focusing on their total wellbeing - careers, health, safety and financial wellness.  

 

Mercer has been named the official knowledge partner for ReFrame, an industry-wide partnership to further gender parity at every level in film, TV, and media, launched by Women In Film and Sundance Institute together with over 50 Hollywood leaders and influencers.

"Hollywood and its bold leaders have the ability to set an example for all industries."
Pam Jeffords, Partner, Mercer
