Current Structure of LCA

Since the pandemic, LCA pivoted from a one-day Career Exploration event, to a six-month virtual Career Exploration/Career Incubator Academy on Zoom the second Tuesday of each month from 12 noon – 3 pm PT.

During our six-month LCA cohort that starts with the launch of ReelAbilities Film Festival NY (April – October) and ReelAbilities Film Festival Los Angeles (October – April) there are several significant opportunities for corporate executive engagement and collaborative synergy.

LCA employment, internship and fellowship opportunities with Meta, THE LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT, and Women’s eNews. Read more
