Give to the HSIP Transportation Fund!

You can make a world of difference to a Harvardwood student this summer! 

The Harvardwood Travel Fund enables Harvard students participating in the Harvardwood Summer Internship Program (HSIP) to travel to/from events hosted by the program throughout the summer. Many students interning in Los Angeles do not have access to a car, and the travel funds go strictly toward ridesharing or public transportation expenses to attend events hosted by Harvardwood or one of our industry partners.

"Who's in the Room" Mentoring Program accepting applications

The deadline to apply to TIME'S UP Entertainment's mentoring program, Who's in the Room, is April 19th! Get the program details and application link below.

timesup.jpg“Who’s in the Room” (WITR), a program of TIME’S UP Entertainment, is designed to increase the presence of people from a variety of economic and cultural backgrounds in the producer and executive ranks of the entertainment industry. We want to flood the market with young, diverse executives and help them build a powerful network of peers and mentors who will support them throughout their career.

We are targeting assistants in the executive and producer pipeline with one to three years of experience to help them get promoted, or “JUMP”, to junior executive level. Core to the program is an understanding that many young people leave the industry at the assistant level because they lack the support to overcome substantial cultural and socio-economic barriers.
