AmCham Belgium, the Motion Picture Association and the US Embassy in Belgium are pleased to invite you to our second event of the Empower Her series on Thursday, June 8.

We will hear from Tim Richardson, Deputy Chief of Mission, US Embassy, and John Gibson, MPA's Vice-President of Multicultural Affairs, on diversity & inclusion and fostering meaningful change through authentic storytelling – empowering women in film and TV.

The film and TV industry has the responsibility to tell stories that reflect the viewpoints and experiences of all creators and audiences. The MPA and its member companies recognize how important it is for the industry to take a leading role. 

This event will be an opportunity to hear from the Motion Picture Association about its members' diversity initiatives and new approaches to find and foster talent in previously overlooked regions, inject meaningful representation into new content and ensure supportive internal cultures.
