WOMEN IN THE ARTS & MEDIA COALITION


A Centralized Resource for the Advancement of Professional Women in the Arts and Media Industries

WHAT DO WE DO?

The purpose of the Women in the Arts & Media Coalition is to focus the abilities of our member organizations to use that combined strength to address issues of concern to women in the arts and media. We are committed to being the link between our member organizations as we collaborate to empower women in our industry through advocacy, mentoring, networking, and events.

The Coalition is totally awesome... really. At the very first Coalition event I went to I made many connections, including two who became clients and one who I swapped services with and who has become a close associate.

ABOUT US


The Women in the Arts and Media Coalition is a centralized resource for professional women in the performing arts and media industries. 

The Coalition provides: 

Access to the Creative Community 
Through its member organizations, the Women in the Arts & Media Coalition represents more than 80,000 women and men in the arts and media. 

Networking 
The Women in the Arts & Media Coalition's combined membership is probably larger and more diverse than that of any other alliance of women in the arts and/or media. As a resource for professional development and social exchange, the Coalition is without equal.  

Information Sharing  
Women in the Arts & Media Coalition-sponsored events, presentations, and networking provide unique forums for the presentation of issues and ideas relating to women's voices and visions in the performing arts and media, including our two Signature Events, the Collaboration Award and VintAge. Through cross-organization meet-and-greets, we introduce the members of our organizations to each other, sharing each other's short and long-term goals, and networking across disciplines. Through our #StageOpps and #ScreenOpps newsletters, we provide submission opportunities for all disciplines in Theatre and in Film/Video monthly, and through our Women in the Arts and Media Coalition Communal Calendar and Blog, we inform members of events of interest across the country about women, arts, and/or media, many with member discounts or available streamed online. 

Mentoring 
The Women in the Arts & Media Coalition provides a link for arts and media professionals to their colleagues across the United States and abroad, including those in colleges and universities. Through outreach to women entering the arts and media and through peer networking, the Coalition serves both its constituency and the entire arts and media community. Our website is a critical resource for outreach, networking, and awareness. 

The networking events are a very effective away to avail myself of the collective resources of professional women in the theatre, arts, and media and to offer my own.

The Coalition is a marvel of networking, at least from my perspective. As a member of Actors’ Equity and The League of Professional Theatre Women, I attended a Coalition Networking event. All I expected was that I would meet some interesting people. Through an amazing and helpful women—a master networker—I found a video editor/producer, a personal assistant, and an extraordinary writer/director for my one-person play. Amazing. Thank you, Coalition!
