Stage 32 is extremely proud to announce that we have joined forces with The Producers Guild of America's newly formed Women's Impact Network (PGA W.I.N.) to shine a spotlight on women working within the industry and women-centric projects! Over the course of two weeks, we will be holding panels, pitch classes and a pitch event for PGA members. There will be over a dozen industry executives in attendance who are specifically seeking female-centric material. Although this event is exclusive to PGA members, we hope it serves to show all members of the community our commitment to shine an equal light on material created by our members.

If you haven't noticed, Stage 32 has recently gotten a facelift! The entire Stage 32 staff is always looking for ways to improve the site - sometimes the improvements are major, like the new Stage 32 Meetups or Stage 32 Jobs section, and other times the improvements are more subtle. Big or small, all of these improvements are designed to increase your networking and career opportunities as well as enhance your Stage 32 user experience.
