#WEpit is cancelled.
#WEPit is cancelled. This pitch contest was intended to focus on gender equality and telling stories that empower women. However, it sparked a great deal of controversy. This event was never intended to belittle or marginalize anyone for any reason. A number of people expressed concerns, and while we did our best to address those concerns, and to look to others who are leaders in the space for guidance, we feel it best to cancel entirely. We sincerely apologize to anyone who felt offended.
