Success Stories

  • So often in our industry, it's "who you know" that gets you opportunities, and Women in Media helps you grow a solid network of professionals that are interested in improving the gender gap in media production. It also provides opportunities to enter into festivals and network with some of the greatest. I'm really proud to be a part of Women in Media.

  • At the Women In Media mixer that I attended in the San Francisco Bay Area, I met some key people that enabled me to shoot the new pitch reel for my show. From these new connections, I met even more film professionals in their networks of all genders and ethnicities. It really is "who you know," and the events that Women In Media does have been essential to moving my projects forward!

  • Out of many organizations that support female minority in the entertainment industry WIM is the one that really does things in the right way. It gathers the right kind of professionals, helps forming successful relationships among them and creates actual work opportunities for many women! I really feel like WIM is a place for me!!

  • I have never felt so highly "in demand" until I joined the WIM Crew List. It shifted my slow non-union career as a Freelance Producer/AD into the fast lane. It's great to have such an effective resource for work and fellowship. The WIM group has kept me informed and motivated with all of the events, news and success of its members.
