LA is a powerhouse of cultural production. Our industries imagine, invent, and influence the way people experience their lives across the globe. Through our engines of innovation in entertainment, technology, aerospace, medicine, politics, hospitality, and real estate, we remake the world every day.

To explore these industries and how they’re reshaping our city, the Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI) has launched a speaker series called Shaping Spaces. We will hear from industry leaders who are bringing incredible perspectives, making powerful contributions, and leading with transformative innovations that are shaping the world for a diverse public.

Join us for our inaugural event, Shaping Cultural Space: Real Estate and the Movies, where our panelists, Kristin Cavanaugh, Sonnet Hui, Bhavna Mistry, Markley Lumpkins, and Bill Humphrey will explore the changing landscape of the Film and Entertainment industry in Los Angeles and how this fits in with broader and evolving land use in our cities.

The panel discussion is preceded with a tour of Sunset Gower Studios that starts promptly at 5:30.

This event is generously sponsored by Hudson Pacific Properties.
