In order to achieve gender equality, we must have gender equity across diverse segments, everywhere.
Before we finished the film, we test-screened all over the U.S. It was important to us to make sure the story was impactful enough for people to want to take action. This is what happened…
- People are contacting their employers about the need to improve-upon their existing diversity & inclusion initiatives
- Association leaders are wanting to expose their membership to a more authentic understanding of the culture around them
- Parents are rethinking their ‘team activities & sports involvement’ and ‘gender role assumptions’ for their daughters and sons
- Ambitious women realize they are not alone.
Pioneers in Skirts was made for communities with movements of their own, companies looking to better their culture, and schools who want their students to be aware of what’s ahead for them. Join us as we work to use the film to change the narrative of gender stereotypes and social norms.
Together we can make a difference!
STAND IN SOLIDARITY WITH WOMEN
It’ll take ALL of us to achieve gender parity in our world. We need to stand with women & girls to resolve the inequity and discrimination they face. It’s not about empowering women. Pioneering women already own their power. The thing is, women and men must accept the way women are using that power and showing their strength.
We must stand in solidarity with women & girls to battle the sexism and bias they experience.
Follow along with us as we take the film into the world. Find out what we’re seeing and hearing. Learn what we learn. Let us be your hub of information and action regarding activism and social change for women & girls.
BE A COMPANY THAT TAKES A STANCE
Play a role in the success of pioneering women and girls!
In a perfect world, companies around the globe would recognize the gender gap in their own organization and set goals to increase the number of diverse women at all levels. They’d focus a lot more on intersectional needs and realize they must create a sustainable culture that follows these kinds of values.
Pioneers in Skirts wants to play a role in achieving this perfect company world. Companies can:

CONTACT THE PRODUCERS to get involved with Pioneers in Skirts!
We have finished the 60-min EVENT version of the film and are preparing to complete the 90-min THEATRICAL version of the movie! Make a corporate donation that will help move the film forward, and/or collaborate with our impact efforts as a Corporate Community Partner!
What is in the 90 version that’s not in the 60?
– We’re weaving in lots of personal advice for women just starting out in their careers.
– We also dig deeper into the stories of our 3 robotic-team girls and the new mom who was up for a promotion.
This is what a Corporate Community Partner looks like —
During post-production of the 90-min (right now)
This is the most expensive part of the documentary filmmaking process. We’re lucky that we can utilize a LOT of the post-production work we did for the 60-min film — but adding another 30 minutes to the story will cause a lot of rework in post.
There is an added bonus to being involved with the film now: your company name will be featured in the movie credits!
After we premiere both versions of the film
This is when outreach efforts will help us build buzz around the message of the film and screen around the globe! We have a lot of plans that we’re working on (community events and university roadshows) and need Partners who want to come along for the ride!
