The Women In Media Holiday Toast has become synonymous with inspiration, community, and kicking off the festive season. This year, we were at the iconic Television City Studios in Hollywood. We recognized truly legendary women who are making a mark in the entertainment industry, paving the way for greater female participation above and below the line.
Friends, members, and luminaries of the entertainment world joined us in honoring these exemplary women, as their colleagues shared stories of their professionalism, artistry, and craft. We celebrated these phenomenal women as they shared their wisdom, leadership, and experience on a special panel.
Diane Warren performed a musical dedication to her fellow honorees with Sharon Farber and 11 year old powerhouse Eden Kontesz. Our Executive Director, Tema Staig received a certificate of recognition from newly re-elected Assembly member Wendy Carrillo.
