New Director at Sundance
As the 2020 year of Sundance wraps up, the organization just announced a new female director, Tabitha Jackson. The past director, John Cooper, had been in that role for 30 years. He is moving on. The impact he made was huge.
What is worth noting is that a very good friend of mine who is the non-profit world told me that none of the top jobs will go to white males in the next ten years. Based on a few other moves, I believe he is absolutely right particularly in the arts.
As my brother says, they can’t get rid of the white men, they can just give less of them (us) powerful positions. He is also right.
Times are changing. Even new novels write about women raising their kids with full-time gigs, their careers are tied directly to who they are. We are moving into a world where the chaos around white men hanging on to what has worked for many decades, it is starting to ebb.
New horizons that are welcome and good to finally see. Hats off to Sundance for leading the charge.
