General Session and mPower Event: A Conversation with Geena Davis and Nina Tassler

When:  Oct 17, 2023 from 08:30 AM to 10:00 AM (ET)
Associated with  mPower

One stage. Two original trailblazers. We cannot wait to welcome long-time friends, Geena Davis and Nina Tassler, to the Main Stage for our mPower event at MBA's Annual Convention & Expo (MBA Annual23). Few have achieved such remarkable success in as many different fields as Academy Award-winner Geena Davis has. She is not only one of Hollywood’s most respected actors, but also a world-class athlete, a member of the genius society Mensa, and a tireless advocate for women and girls. Her college roommate, Nina Tassler is an entertainment executive, producer, and activist. Tassler was named Chairman of CBS Entertainment in February 2014, after having served as President since 2004 and leading CBS Entertainment to great heights, propelling it to be named America’s #1 Network during 12 of the 13 years of her tenure. She also assembled a senior staff that was 50% female and helped establish CBS Entertainment’s first Diversity, Inclusion, and Communications department. She developed many hit series with strong women characters, and now runs her own production company, PatMa Productions.

Hear from these two empowering women and learn how their work to reduce gender stereotyping in media helps move the ball forward. Thank you to sponsor FICO!

MBA Annual23 is taking place October 15-18 in Philadelphia and we hope you join us for the original annual gathering of real estate finance professionals.
