iLunch – Youth-Targeting Storytelling – Session Details
Plus a new funding opportunity

Join Co-Directors Kim Wilson and Dr Colleen Russo Johnson as they discuss their new initiative, the Center for Scholars and Storytellers (CSS), a joint initiative or UCLA and Ryerson University. Their goal is to provide actionable insights for youth-targeting storytelling by supporting the creative process with child development and social science research.

In this session, they will be giving insights on topics such as unconscious bias, gender representation, the role of boys, girl empowerment, and character virtues.
Best of all, they will be talking about a funding opportunity for apps and innovative content for youth around character. CSS is less than a year old but has already worked with Disney, Paramount Pictures, Mattel and the See Her, Be Her Campaign. Come check them out!
