This year at VidCon there was an awesome #WomenOnYouTube workshop for creators, featuring Emily Graslie, Hayley G Hoover, Akilah Hughes, Savannah Brown, Lex Croucher, and Rosianna Halse Rojas. Attendees split into smaller groups, each with one of those group leaders, and had an open discussion about current issues affecting female creators.
Here is some footage of the opening and closing panel dialogue and Emily Graslie’s discussion group.
