Session 3

“Politics isn’t about somebody else. It isn’t about another place or another time. It is about you. It is about here, and it is about now.” —Eric Garcetti

During session three of The MAKERS Conference we heard from Los Angeles Mayor, Eric Garcetti; actress and activist, Geena Davis; and Editor in Chief of Marie Claire Anne Fulenwider and comedian Chelsea Handler.

From the politics of running a city to the politics of running a comedy writing room, the common thread of session three was the everyday run-ins with sexism, or as Geena Davis might describe, an "unconscious gender bias."
