MARIE-CLAIRE ISAAMAN APPOINTED TO GEENA DAVIS INSTITUTE COUNCIL

As we look to forge closer ties with the highly-respected Geena Davis Institute, we’re delighted to report that our CEO Marie-Claire Isaaman has been appointed to the organisation’s Advisory Council.

The Geena Davis Institute was founded in 2004 by two-time Academy Award winning actor Geena Davis who starred in two culturally important movies – Thelma & Louise and A League of Their Own – as well as many other roles. The research-based organisation provides guidance and thought-leadership aimed at increasing representation of women and other under-represented groups and has a powerful strapline of ‘If she can see it, she can be it’.

The Institute’s CEO Madeline de Nonno hosted a keynote session at the Women in Games Global Annual Conference late last year, presenting its latest research into representation in games.

Geena Davis Institute will be taking this work in games forward in 2024, working with an Advisory Council – of which Marie-Claire Isaaman is now a member.

Marie-Claire said: “The work of the Geena Davis Institute is highly respected in entertainment and media industries around the world – and for good reason. I am honoured to be a member of the Advisory Council and, as an organisation, we are looking forward to further collaboration with Madeline and the team to make games a better place for women and girls.”
