The Women In Media Holiday Toast has become synonymous with inspiration, community, and kicking off the festive season. This year, we will be at the iconic Television City Studios in Hollywood. We will be recognizing truly legendary women who are making a mark in the entertainment industry, paving the way for greater female participation above and below the line.
Join us in honoring these exemplary women, as their colleagues share stories of their professionalism, artistry, and craft. Let’s celebrate these phenomenal women as they share their wisdom, leadership, and experience on a special panel as we close 2022 and look towards 2023. All genders are encouraged to be part of this celebration.
Brunch will be served, including an array of freshly baked pastries, eggs, vegan options, and more. There will be a mimosa bar with fresh orange juice, coffee, and tea.
Diane Warren will be performing a special musical dedication to her fellow honorees.
