The UNIC Women’s Cinema Leadership programme is a 12-month cross-sector, pan-European mentoring scheme for women in cinema exhibition. The programme is rooted in the belief that gender-balanced leadership in cinema exhibition is imperative for business success, better governance and more equity in the industry.
Our key long-term objective is to broaden and deepen the talent pool for leadership in our sector and promote a culture of change within the industry that values growth and equal opportunities.
The initial pilot was launched at CineEurope 2017 to provide 6 ‘up and coming’ female cinema professionals with the unique opportunity to receive one-to-one career advice and guidance from a female senior industry executive recognised for her leadership and business success across the wider cinema landscape. The pilot was warmly welcomed by the industry and is now successfully rolling, with the second edition launched at CineEurope 2018.
The programme will provide six rising female European cinema professionals with the unique opportunity to network with and receive 1-to-1 career advice from a group of senior female executives recognised for their leadership and business success across the wider cinema landscape.
UNIC Women’s Cinema Leadership Programme is a 12-month pilot initiative who will see 6 senior female industry executives each mentoring an ‘up and coming’ female professional currently employed within a European cinema company (which is a direct or indirect member of UNIC). Besides 1:1 monthly mentoring, the scheme will also involve job shadowing exercise for mentees, networking opportunities and workshops.
