NOT DONE.

Verizon is proud to share the trailer for MAKERS’ ‘NOT DONE,’ a documentary celebrating how far we've come in the women's movement while acknowledging there is still work to do. Tune in tonight at 8 PM ET on PBS. This film is the first project supported by our Future Fund, a $5 million commitment to support new and emerging female talent across entertainment and technology. For more information on MAKERS and NOT DONE, check out this page and follow @MAKERSwomen on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook at Facebook.com/MAKERSwomen.

Inspiring words for our V Team

In the spirit of NOT DONE, Tami Erwin, Christy Pambianchi and Rima Qureshi co-authored a powerful letter, which includes female leaders from across the business. The letter addresses COVID-19’s impact on the workforce, with new data revealing more women are downshifting their careers. Check out the full letter here.

#Next20: Disability + Race

Our next #Next20 episode features Verizon Media’s Tatiana Pile moderating a panel with disability rights activists on the intersectionality of disability and race. The discussion will cover the continued barriers and misperceptions people with disabilities face despite being the largest minority group in the U.S.

Brought to you in partnership with our BOLD and ADVANCE Employee Resource Groups, speakers include Imani Barbarin, Leon Ford and Maysoon Zayid who share their personal stories and thoughts on how we can build a more accessible, inclusive and equitable world. Check it out on Wednesday on our Twitter page at 3 PM ET/12 PM PT.
