Step into the spotlight and join us for an inspiring session celebrating the power and presence of women on television. Why should we care who is on TV?

Award-winning writer, actor and star of Alma’s Not Normal Sophie Willan is joined by prolific actress, star of Silent Witness and disability activist Liz Carr to discuss the challenges and triumphs of being women on TV, and why representation matters.

Chaired by broadcaster Geeta Pendse, the panel explores the narratives shaping our screens and cultures, and who gets to tell those stories.

Sharing insights, laughs and their incredible personal journeys to fame, from growing up in care to navigating discrimination, this is a session not to be missed.
