Golden Globe-winning actress-writer-producer-director Poehler is receiving the Entrepreneur in Entertainment Award, which celebrates the ongoing achievements of an individual whose work nurtures the advancement of their female collaborators.
Poehler says she’s “delighted, especially since I’m sharing the evening with so many impressive women.”
And in Hollywood’s rapidly changing social landscape, Poehler has certainly noticed recent positive change.
“More women of color are telling their stories and more women are behind the camera,” she notes, as well as “the changing faces and broadening minds of the ultimate gatekeepers.”
