Why #diversityinAV?

Female representation in a male-dominated AV production field matters because it can bring a much-needed diversity of perspectives and ideas to the team. It can also provide role models for young women and minorities who are interested in pursuing a career in the AV production field. This can lead to better team dynamics, increased creativity, and a better overall product. Additionally, having a more diverse team can lead to a better understanding of the needs of different audiences and can help to create AV products that are more accessible and inclusive.
