How can we advocate for our rights as workers and artists? What are the roles of unions and guilds in protecting and promoting production design? What practices can we adopt to improve work conditions for all production designers? How can we encourage inclusion?

Panelists discuss the importance of organized labor, and will share their experience in negotiating for better wages and working conditions.
