Assistant Support Group #1

Continuing the #PayUpHollywood fight and empowering assistants, we're kicking  off 2020 with monthly confidential support groups.


Our goal is to create a space for fellow professionals to share their individual experiences with a greater collective. If we can build a supportive infrastructure for dealing with workplace issues, those who feel alone in this will have a community that can give them the tools to handle these issues.


To guarantee an intimate setting, the first meeting will be capped at 30 participants. If you are not able to reserve a spot, please sign up for the waitlist and you will be first on the list for our next group. Sign up here
