Women in Animation Relaunches Under New Leadership

The professional non-profit organization for women in the animation industry, Women in Animation (WIA), will be celebrating its 20th year in 2014 and has just been relaunched under new executive leadership: Director of Production for Mattel’s newly formed Playground Productions, Margaret Dean, and Technicolor’s Vice President of Business Development, Animation & Games, Kristy Scanlan were elected as Co-Presidents of the organization.

As co-presidents, both Dean and Scanlan will be in charge of leading the restructured organization, communicating the organization’s current role and future vision to its members worldwide. Encompassing women from all aspects of the animation industry, WIA envisions a world in which women share fully in the creation, production and rewards of animation, resulting in richer and more diverse entertainment and media that move our culture forward. Retiring Co-Presidents Rita Street and Jan Nagel will continue to support WIA as members of the Advisory Committee.

“It is our goal to engage WIA members through a variety of online and offline events, small collegial gatherings and large networking events in an effort to create new opportunities of connection and inspiration. We understand how broad the animation market is today from games to web to the traditional film mediums,” Scanlan and Dean jointly stated. “The organization also looks to inspire women to excel in the animation industry by encouraging artistic excellence through WIA awards and by educating its members about technology advances and career growth in continuing education classes.” They added, “WIA advocates for women in animation in an effort to improve access to opportunities; foster new talent by offering scholarships and mentorships to students; and pays tribute to the female pioneers of animation.”
