These members may no longer run for key elected offices– even on their own Diversity Committees– and their names are not included on certain lists of eligible directors submitted to studios and production companies seeking female directors.

    1. Thanks, I know that’s true. I’m keeping the focus on just women here, but I think the rule is a bad one in general for a Guild that includes a lot of artists. Taylor Hackford always chortled about having “A Working Guild,” but of course he was always working. Best, Maria
