Episode 4: Prem Gill, A Leader for Change

A trip to the UK in the early 1990s profoundly affected Prem Gill’s understanding of the power of storytelling and how it can shape and change identity. Since then, through her past work creating and launching Telus’ Storyhive Program and as CEO of Creative BC, she’s championed the development of pathways for many filmmakers from diverse communities to tell their own stories and build their careers.

In this thoughtful and personal podcast, Prem shares her journey as a leader who both navigates and promotes culture shift within an industry in flux. She also describes her experience of being a racialized leader – including being told she was a diversity hire and having to outperform others’ expectations. If you are a creative industry leader, emerging or established, listen up and gain insights on today’s creative industries from Prem and Natasha, and find out what exactly happened on that UK trip.
