Women in Animation Launches Mentoring Program

The professional nonprofit Women in Animation (WIA) is kicking off a mentoring program.

It's open to WIA members in the Los Angeles area for its initial run, from October through March. Based on the outcome, WIA hopes to expand the program.

The mentoring committee is spearheaded by WIA co-president Kristy Scanlan and committee chair Kaaren Lee Brown. Said Scanlan: “Mentoring is one of the principles at the heart of WIA's mission and vision.”
