On December 15th, we honored legendary women above and below the line at our annual holiday fundraiser. We recognized women who are making a mark in the entertainment industry and paving the way for greater female participation above and below the line. Our members and friends of the organization celebrated their accomplishments with their equally legendary colleagues who raised a glass with heartfelt toasts. The women shared their wisdom, leadership, and experience on a panel that focused on their work and expertise, moderated by Women In Media Executive Director Tema L. Staig.
