The initiative will support women who have a strong desire to change the 3.7% statistic by taking their performing arts career into their own hands.
Led by Boca del Lupo's artistic director Sherry Yoon and associate producer intern Ming Hudson, the group aims to build a strong and supportive community of diverse women in Vancouver who are willing to work together and create change.
Members of the program will benefit from peer-to-peer support and free programming such as workshops, local and national guest speakers, open discussions and cultural activities. Monthly meetings will commence in March, 2016 and will be held at various spaces in Vancouver.
