Cheryl Boone Isaacs

Please join us for a conversation with Cheryl Boone Isaacs, President, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS). During her four years helming the AMPAS, Boone Isaacs has overseen the annual Oscars award ceremony, with active leadership focused not only on increasing diversity among the Academy's membership and governance, but improving industry practices and hiring. Boone Isaacs will discuss her decades-long career in the film industry--from publicity and marketing, to starting her own company--and leadership lessons learned along the way.

This event is open to the public. Co-sponsored by Harvard's Office for the Arts.
