Influence Women
Influence Lab Women
The Influence Lab women’s initiative brings together women in the media to think, exchange ideas, and be challenged with how they balance Kingdom principles while living and working at the highest levels of the entertainment industry.  Our goal is to create leaders who can apply Biblical wisdom to our careers and calling and use our influence to impact the industry. There are no easy answers and this isn’t for sharing headshots or resumes. It’s for women who want to reach beyond and make a difference – particularly during this challenging time in the industry.
