Academy Award-winner Geena Davis, Sony Entertainment Co-chair Amy Pascal, philanthropist Wallis Annenberg and ABC Entertainment president Stephen McPherson are scheduled keynote speakers at the Executives and Producers Luncheon and Forum of The Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media Conference 2008.

The four-day forum takes place between January 28 and 31 at the InterContinental Hotel in Century City. The high-powered speakers are gathering to help raise awareness of gender imbalance in kids entertainment and strategize about how to improve the situation.

Research findings about aspirations and goals for girls in children’s media will be discussed by Dr. Stacy Smith of the Annenberg School at both the January 30 luncheon and the Open Forum press conference on January 31.
