Event Description

[Postponed from October 11]

President of Bridge Entertainment Labs and Founder Steven Olikara will talk about the role that the entertainment industry has in helping overcome the “us versus them” dynamics that are fracturing the U.S. He will also discuss how Bridge Entertainment Labs is helping to change the media landscape to humanize our current political tribes to one another through elevating civic health and social cohesion as a topic of focus for the entertainment industry; equipping creatives to produce content that bridges divides and models healthy conflict; and empowering the entertainment industry with data, research, and resources to accelerate the creation of content that strengthens America's social fabric.

Lunch will be provided (first come, first served) at noon; talk will begin at 12:15pm.
