Susan Andersen Associate Director at RISD Career Center also join the conversation. Each panel member shared their experiences in the film & television industry with the students filling the RISD Auditorium. Carissa Abitabilo stated after the event, “It was so great to meet all of you & very inspiring for the students who attended. I saw many of them over the next few days & they shared how important your experiences are & how humbled they were to be with you. They ALL expressed how comfortable you made them feel. I am hoping we’ll find a way to come together as a group or individually soon!” WIFVNE works to promote proactive images of women to the public & to empower all women in film & video to achieve their professional potential.
