The NYWIFT Power Player Breakfast with Amy Emmerich of Refinery29 on October 25, 2016

The Power Player Breakfast Series brings women at the top of their career game to NYWIFT for intimate, inspiring discussions on their current projects, working their ways to the top and other exciting industry insights! For October, the Power Player Breakfast welcomes guest Amy Emmerich, Chief Content Officer at Refinery29, a leading digital lifestyle media company for women.

If you don’t know this digital powerhouse by name, you certainly know the media brands that have felt the impact of her programming. She has more than 20 years of experience developing content and programming for brands that include MTV Networks, Travel Channel, HBO, Oxygen Media and Vice Media. An award-winning producer, she has a full spectrum of production and development experience across platforms, including linear television, digital video and emerging social media.

As Refinery29’s Content Maven, Emmerich is committed to creating a dialogue with a powerful generation of women around topics that matter. She is focused on driving content strategy and expanding distribution across channels as Refinery29 scales globally. Presently it has 25 million visitors. Refinery29’s ambitions to enter the TV space got a big step closer when it recently inked an agreement with Turner, which is expected to result in digital and TV programming collaborations.

Emmerich is likely to drop word about what kind of content Refinery29 is looking for these days. As an indication of that, consider two of its more recent endeavors: ShatterBox Anthology, a short film initiative for emerging female filmmakers, and The Skinny, a dark, comedic original series.

ShatterBox provides female filmmakers the support and opportunity to realize their visions and reach new audiences. Its first film, Kitty, which is Chloë Sevigny’s directorial debut, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last May. The Skinny debuted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival to rave reviews. It also earned a Webby award for Drama: Long Form or Series.

Before her most recent promotion, Emmerich was the EVP of programming at Refinery29, where she spearheaded the growth of the video department, launched dozens of original series and helped expand the company's content offerings.

Previously, Emmerich served as vice president of production at Vice Media and vice president of production and development for the Travel Channel. Emmerich’s career also includes producer roles at HBO and Oxygen Media. She has won multiple Emmy awards for a documentary special, Translating Genocide, and projects such as MTV’s Made. She was featured in Variety's 2016 Power of Women New York Impact Report.

    @Rachel Borowicz Most of us think he's a pretty good prime minister this far ,but we still find things to criticize him on ,nothing comparable to Donald Trump of course. We believe he is too egocentric, he loves taking pictures of himself and sometimes it seems like he's just trying to be like/better than his father (Also a former prime minister: Pierre Trudeau)

    Why hasn't the U.S. ratify CEDAW yet?

    President Carter sent CEDAW to the U.S. Senate for advice and consent in 1980. It remains in the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. The Senate has held hearings on CEDAW five times in the past 25 years but failed each time to bring the treaty to a vote on the floor. Why?
    Conservative organizations, such as the Home School Legal Defense Associationand Concerned Women for America, vehemently oppose the ratification of all human rights treaties. They insist that human rights treaties violate American sovereignty. Thirty-eight Republican senators demonstrated this last December, when they refused to join their more moderate colleagues in ratifying the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
    CEDAW establishes the moral, civic and political equality of women and protects women's right to be free from discrimination and violence. Thanks to CEDAW, these values have diffused around the world. 
    Conservative critics are wrong when they claim that CEDAW reflects radical feminist views. In fact, a Republican woman, Nixon appointee Patricia Hutar, persuaded the United Nations to draft CEDAW. On January 30, 1974, President Nixon called for the U.S. government to commemorate International Women's Year at all levels.

    Has anyone used an air fryer?

    At first glance, deep fryers and air fryers seem quite similar. Both give regular food (such as veggies or pieces of meat) a delicious taste and crunchy exterior. However, the method a deep fryer uses (dunking food into a large amount of hot oil) is much different from that of an air fryer, which coats food with a little bit of oil then blasts it with hot air. If you love traditional fried food, the deep fryer could be your best bet. If you’re a bit more health conscious and want to achieve similar results without entirely giving up that distinctive fried taste and texture, an air fryer could be the optimal choice.
