Donating to Women In Media shows a commitment to equality in the crew.  We are one of the few organizations that champions gender balance below as well as above the line. Through professional development, networking, the Crew List, and other initiatives, we support women and those who wish to hire them for a more balanced entertainment industry.

We believe that in current climate where people are coming forward to talk about discrimination and abuse, it’s more important than ever to double down on hiring women. Your donations go a long way towards our programs that promote parity in the workplace for a safer, healthier environment in our industry.

  • I went to the Inclusion Rider event organized by Women in Media. It was not only very informative, it was a super-happening event and a great time.

  • Women in Media is an amazing resource for connecting and inspiring women while opening its arms to all genders. The organisation is driven and motivated to pull people together which I highly respect and will always support. WIM has fantastic events if you are an aspiring or seasoned filmmaker, actor, writer or director.

  • 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!

  • Thank you for the amazing opportunity to be a part of the Da Vinci Resolve 3 day program. It was extremely informative and I feel so proud to be a part of it.  Thank you so much for helping us as creatives become confident in tasks we have felt intimated to touch upon.

  • WIM is great. I love that you consider every department in all your activities and events and that so much of it is working to actually get people hired. And it’s effective!

  • 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.

  • I don't really care about a person's gender when I choose to work with them, but I come to Women In Media networking events because there are SO MANY talented passionate skilled people there.

  • NAB expo is a drink from the proverbial firehose. The Women in Media tour gave us serious "alone time" with quality vendors from pre- through post-production. It added a lot of value to my NAB experience.
