Alliance for Women in Media is a national, nonprofit organization that extends membership to qualified professionals in the electronic media and allied fields. Founded in 1952, our mission is to advance the impact of women in these fields by educating, advocating and acting as a resource to our members, the industry and the public. The Southern California Chapter of Alliance for Women in Media offers local benefits to its members, including: Networking Events, Educational Programs, Community Outreach, Mentorship, and Scholarship Program. The chapter also holds the annual Genii Awards — a gala not to miss — that celebrates the outstanding contributions of women in Radio, Television, Film, New Media and Advertising. Proceeds from the Genii Awards fund the AWM SoCal student scholarships.
