We’re just days away from the event we look forward to all year: our Annual Gala to fundraise for the work we do to further gender parity in media, and to celebrate those who are enacting this change. Join us to toast to the future of a balanced entertainment industry alongside others who support this mission. At the WIF Gala, do good and have fun!
The event will be hosted by Xosha Roquemore, who is best known for making audiences laugh with her hilarious portrayal or nurse and office gossip Tamra on the hit comedy “The Mindy Project.” Roquemore was recently seen recurring on Showtime’s “I’m Dying Up Here” and co-starred on Showtime’s “Black Monday.” She will next be seen co-starring in Tom Shadyac’s highly-anticipated film BRIAN BANKS.
Roquemore’s first big onscreen role was Jo-Ann in Lee Daniels’ 2009 Academy Award®-winning film PRECIOUS. Other film credits include THE RUNAROUND opposite J.K. Simmons, James Franco’s THE DISASTER ARTIST, G.B.F., PRICE CHECK opposite Parker Posey, and MISSISSIPPI REQUIEM opposite Topher Grace and Amy Smart. Her notable television roles include guest spots on “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” “Rescue Me,” and “My Boys.”
