From Apollo Education:
Career Panels at the Apollo are part of the Apollo Theater Academy, a program which advances career and leadership skills through seminars, workshops, panels and internships focuses on professions “behind the-scenes” in the arts and entertainment industries.
Our annual Women’s History Month celebration will feature a panel of women who work behind the scenes in the arts, media, sports, and entertainment industries in the area of production. We will hear about their various career paths and gain a better understanding of the variety of jobs that fall under the heading “production”.
Moderated by Brenda Williams-Butts, Sr. Director of Community Engagement & Audience Development, New York Public Radio. The panel will include:
• Melanie Byrd - Production Manager, Scripps Networks Interactive
• Monet Molock – Electrics/Lighting Designer, Apollo Theater
• Sarah Peterson – Production/Technical Manager, Jazz at Lincoln Center
• Tami Eiserer - Technical Manager/Stage Manager, ESPN, NBC, NFL
We'll meet in the Apollo Theater lobby at 6pm, then head up as a group around 6:30pm. If you need to arrive later than 6:30pm, it's ok - just state that you're with the HarlemGo Meetup group at the desk - but, please try to arrive as close to 6:30pm as possible.
As always, if you have any questions, comments, running late, trying to find us at the venue, or to check on last minute status updates on the event, please use the comments/notifications section below or feel free to call/text me, Daniel, @ [masked]. Thanks!
