May Book Discussion

Creativity, Inc by Ed Catmull

Date : Tuesday, May 2, 2017
Time : 6:30 p.m.
Location : 55 Degrees on the Square
1104 Elm Carrollton, TX 75006

Creativity, Inc. is a book for managers who want to lead their employees to new heights, a manual for anyone who strives for originality, and the first-ever, all-access trip into the nerve center of Pixar Animation—into the meetings, postmortems, and “Braintrust” sessions where some of the most successful films in history are made. It is, at heart, a book about how to build a creative culture—but it is also, as Pixar co-founder and president Ed Catmull writes, “an expression of the ideas that I believe make the best in us possible.”

Member Activist

Farmers Branch Carrollton AAUW member and Brookhaven College faculty, Asmara Saleemi, presented a lecture at Brookhaven’s Professional Development Conference in February on Women in Leadership.

She pointed out that women make up more than half of college graduates and half of the labor force, but they continue to be underrepresented in upper-level positions across job sectors and industries. Her workshop explored why the gender leadership gap exists, its impact, and what can be done to close this difference between women and men. She appreciated having AAUW’s research and PowerPoint presentation materials available to support her lecture.
