As part of the 2016 TIFF Industry Conference programming, TIFF hosted a panel entitled 'Women at the Helm "Because It's 2016!"' moderated by Rina Fraticelli of Women in View. The members of the panel included a number of industry leaders  discussing important initiatives to create gender parity in the screen-based industry. Included in this discussion was the 2xMore initiative, led by Women in View, which aims to double the number of working female directors working in scripted television in Canada, as well as "What's Wrong With this Picture?" a study led by Dr. Amanda Coles and supported by the Directors Guild of Canada.
