Deal With It: A Women’s Conference Helps Women in Entertainment Take Charge and Face Life’s Curveballs

It was standing room only at MPTF’s third annual Deal With It: A Women’s Conference on September 27 at the Montage Beverly Hills. More than 325 women in the entertainment industry gathered for a day of insightful discussions with highly respected experts and speakers who shared their first-hand experience, whether it was surviving breast cancer, dealing with aging parents, or turning a passion into a successful new enterprise.  

The two keynote speakers, artist Candy Chang, creator of the “Before I Die” project, and CBS Sunday Morning Contributor Nancy Giles captivated the audience with their stories that were entertaining, inspiring and, at times, emotional. Interspersed throughout the day, 12 breakout panels offered invaluable resources and inspiration to tackle issues most important to the women attending including Alzheimer’s and heart disease, career reinvention, wellness, emergency preparedness, aging, elder care, patient advocacy, estate planning, wealth management, and more.


Deal With It is an invitation-only event hosted each year by MPTF (Motion Picture & Television Fund), a charitable nonprofit. It exemplifies MPTF’s 94-year commitment to the well-being of the entertainment community and is one of many ways the organization touches the lives of those working in the industry.
