The year is 2018. March 8, to be precise. International Women's Day is coming to a close, and two colleagues are approaching Michael Quigley in the TBS and TNT Atlanta offices. "You know, this International Women's Day is ending," they told the Executive Vice President of Commercial Operations, Content Strategy and Monetization. "But we think there's a way next year to showcase all the women's voices and perspectives we've got on our networks all year round, in front of and behind the camera."
Every year around this time in March, Donna Speciale, President of Ad Sales for WarnerMedia, brings together her salespeople, to share with them the latest priorities from the brand teams and how they will go to market, all to rally them into the Upfront season.

"I'd read his book (What in God’s Name?) and contacted him to say if anything ever becomes of it, I would love to be involved in whatever capacity you would have me. That started us talking and here we are."
