You are Cordially Invited
to be privately interviewed for the
In Judaism there is a term known as your “Ethical Will”. It means the legacy of your wisdom transmitted to your lineage, children, family, and also the world.
Think of this global summit as a time capsule for your professional wisdom, your dharma.
This is your special invitation from my heart, to create an ethical will for the women professionals in the entertainment business who are following (and sometimes stumbling) in your footsteps.
Would you be willing to share your wisdom with us?
This page is hidden, unless you’ve been sent the link directly.
You’re receiving this private invitation because Sylvia and her partner Kaia at the Entertainment Business League recognize you have honed your superpowers, your intuition, your business acumen, your leadership… your wisdom.
All we desire is an hour of your time. Will you join us?
We need a permanent paradigm shift for women in entertainment.
My name is Sylvia Franklin, and I’m a writer/producer with upcoming credits on ABC’s The Rookie and Women of the Movement. Additionally, I have worked on teams that have produced 150+ hours of TV as a script coordinator. I’m also a member of the WGAw, having run the Committee of Black Writers, am currently a member of the Committee of Women Writers, as well as a former president of the Organization of Black Screenwriters.
Can I speak frankly?
As women, we’re often our own worst enemies. I have stories where envy and betrayal are at the center – and not from something I’ve created, but stories I’ve lived. I’m sure you have too – haunting experiences endured at the hands of people you trusted, and sometimes even due to your own self-doubt and sabotage.
Yes, we’ve all suffered significantly – but the injustices of women against women… are their own form of sad cruelty.
Where’s the sisterhood? The support and solidarity?
Instead of looking for it, let’s co-create it! My co-host Kaia Alexander founded her own mentorship program for women writers at the start of 2020 when she realized… there weren’t any. Barriers to working in the business remained impenetrable. Women struggle – struggle, often as “lone wolves.”
Kaia and I both agree that women need to work together, should fly in formation, celebrate one another and each other’s accomplishments. That means getting to parity industry-wide. It’s an entire paradigm shift of women working together, creating an atmosphere of inclusion, especially for BIWOC women who statistically have less representation than white women.
But here’s the challenge:
We don’t need another bleeping initiative!
We can’t make actual change – to inclusivity, to gender parity, to representation and diverse voices – unless we learn what to do differently, what to do that will really make an impact, move the needle, put women in the power seat more often.
That’s where you come in.
We need your wisdom about business, your professional acumen. What do you know now, looking back, that you wish you knew starting out? What makes a woman successful? What can we do better?
We need a map of the territory, and a sense of how to navigate it as we bring our own visions to light.
And I think we can cover it in an hour with you, and I’d love to!
Who is our Audience?
The Entertainment Business Wisdom Summit is for women professionals and creatives in the entertainment business. We are producers, writers, directors, actors, execs and creatives from all types of class, race and ethnicity.
Our goal of 30,000 global participants for this summit is within reach because of Kaia’s and her team’s extensive background of digital marketing experience and audience reach via our partners and running ads online.
We recognize that there are women who want to learn from you. What do you wish you knew sooner in your career? What can you share with us that we should know?
This audience of professional women wants to hear your wisdom!
How it Works
You’ll be interviewed privately over Zoom for 1 hour by me, Sylvia. The recording of your interview will broadcast during the summit with other women of influence I’m interviewing.
We’ve heard enough, and had enough from the establishment telling us when and how to make these changes. We’d rather hear it from YOU.
In this interview, we’ll deep dive to discuss what really matters to YOU, what you think other women professionals should know.
I’ll ask the questions you wish someone would ask you – about the things you’ve learned, your wisdom about business. About what it takes to make a global impact with your vision and your talent. Hopefully we have a few laughs, too.
Our interview will be recorded virtually at your convenience over Zoom – and given at no cost to generations of women in the entertainment industry worldwide.
