Game Show Network is in the midst of rolling out its most ambitious content slate in network history. Which means Shea is doubly busy in her dual roles heading up programming and marketing. After adding nearly 14 million new viewers in 2018, the network turned up the volume on originals this year, including strip series “Best Ever Trivia Show” and a reboot of pop trivia/card game hybrid “Catch 21.” Game Show Network has many women in leadership positions, “and we do ongoing mentoring to young female employees and support their growth,” she says.
What specifically does your company do to support and elevate the women who work there?
Game Show Network has many women in leadership positions, and we do ongoing mentoring to young female employees and support their growth.
How can the industry do a better job of recruiting women and ensuring they have a path to senior positions?
The more women in positions of power is a strength. We have to make sure there is a direct path to a mentor with formal and informal mentoring opportunities.
