This is the 3rd year running the SLP with about 20 learners each year. The SLP's core purpose is to Build Community (mentorship, peer networking, and curated talks) and Enhance Skills (through individualized training suggestions and team check-ins). The ASWF's Diversity and Inclusion Working Group (out of which the SLP was created), also supports other initiatives to break down barriers within Animation/VFX industries including ASWF representation and diversity, outreach and education, and resource/guidance.
