Wicked Flicks Productions announced an early, exclusive showing of The Chasing Grace Project photo exhibit titled, “Persistence.” The Chasing Grace Project is a six-episode documentary series that seeks to help recruit and retain female talent for the tech industry and advance a constructive narrative on inclusiveness.
The exhibit featured portraits of women from the six-part documentary series about women in tech. It debuted at the Googleplex in Mountain View, California, on December 5, 2017, at the CloudNOW Women in Cloud Awards event, while The Chasing Grace Project trailer was also screened.
"CloudNOW is thrilled to feature this important documentary and exhibit, which shine a light on the collective experiences and resiliency of women in our industry," said Jocelyn DeGance Graham, founder of CloudNOW.org.
"We hope the images invite people to learn more about these women and their powerful stories, which we believe can provide blueprints for other women pursuing careers in tech," said Jennifer Cloer, Executive Producer of The Chasing Grace Project and co-founder of Wicked Flicks.
The artist and photographer who produced the images were in attendance at the event. Edina Clagett, the founder of Beyoutiful Portraits, specializes in female portraiture and held the studio shoot in mid-November. With a twenty year career in photography, Clagett focused on one mission in the last six years: to empower everyday women to reconnect with their own beauty and discover a newfound self-love and acceptance wherever they are in their life.
