FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Award-winning producer and media executive Kathleen Cooke gathers women in media at NRB 2024 in Nashville for connection and collaboration opportunities within Influence Women.
Los Angeles, CA (February 6, 2024) — Birthed in Hollywood and expanding to production hubs nationwide, Influence Women is raising a new generation of professional female leaders in media, entertainment and the arts. Founded by media executive Kathleen Cooke, the women’s initiative will host a special gathering for women in media at NRB 2024 in Nashville. “Connect and Collaborate – An Influence Women Event at NRB” will feature women who are “leading the way” in creating movies, TV shows, music and artistic projects with excellence on Wednesday, February 21, 2024 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center.
“Influence Women are developing and creating projects – films, books, podcasts and other creative works that influence our culture in positive ways,” states Kathleen Cooke. “Despite the challenges in the industry, these women are finding ways to ‘make it happen’ and achieve success.”
Founded in 2014 under the umbrella of the nonprofit The Influence Lab, Cooke’s initial goal for the Hollywood women’s group was to inspire thought, educate, and ignite Christian women working in media and entertainment. Influence Women experienced explosive growth from those beginnings, expanding to Orange County, California, and then spreading across the country to Nashville, Atlanta, and Baton Rouge, with a new branch launching this month in Houston.
Focusing on mentorship and leadership programs, Influence Women provides a powerful platform for women to be a force for change in the entertainment industry. Additionally, the group offers Christian community and helps women build the kind of faith that will unleash their calling and purpose in the film, television and creative arts industries.
