The Perfect Women's History Month Event
by Erin BagwellFounder of Feminist WednesdayCo-host of BeaverTalk
You already know Dream, Girl is a documentary film showcasing the stories of inspiring and ambitious female entrepreneurs.
But did you know that companies around the world are screening the film to showcase their powerhouse inclusivity and diversity networks?
Starbucks, Target, NASA, Twitter, TIME, and MailChimp are just a few of the companies who are cultivating and inspiring their teams with our documentary.
HERE ARE 3 REASONS WHY DREAM, GIRL IS PERFECT FOR CELEBRATING WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH AT YOUR COMPANY:
1. Cultivate a connection with your team.
I always say the real magic of Dream, Girl is what happens after the film. Once your company hears the inspiring stories on screen, they feel emboldened to share their own experiences. Host a panel discussion after the film to dive into the topics or themes in the film that resonate most with you and your audience. We provide a 24-page post screening Q&A discussion guidebook to help facilitate conversations after the film.
2. Create a space where women’s voices are the authority.
Whether you’re crushing your 9 to 5 or climbing the corporate ladder, we don’t get a chance to revel in the stories and experiences of authentic, vulnerable, and ambitious women. From balancing family life, to talking about self-sabotage, to women supporting other women- we share 10 diverse stories with all the nuances of what it’s like to be a woman in business today.
3. Men love the film.
This question always comes up on my host calls: “Will the men at my company be able to identify with the stories in the film?” Dream, Girl gives men the unique opportunity to view the world through a woman’s perspective. They get to hear about the challenges, discrimination, and experiences women face in a one-hour documentary that’s upbeat and uplifting. We’ve had everyone from NASA engineers to Republican representatives gush over how inspiring these stories are. It’s a great way to bring the men and women in your company in conversation about what they can do to support and uplift one another.
PRO TIP: If you do host a panel or Q&A alongside the film make sure you let the women in your company lead. In 100% of the screenings I attend if there is one man in the audience he will ask the first question and lead the discussion. This is a great opportunity for the guys to sit back, listen, and let the women in your company be the authority on their experiences. Don’t feel like having men be part of the conversation for your event? That’s cool too! Curate your screening in a way that best serves your audience and your intention for hosting.
