Alliance For Women In Media Announces AWM Connects Mentoring Program

In its 70th year since inception, the Alliance for Women in Media has launched a new program: AWM Connects, a virtual mentoring program that will connect young/new professionals with senior level executives throughout television, radio, and digital media.

“The Alliance for Women in Media has been connecting, educating and recognizing women in all forms of media for 70 years and this is the next opportunity to fulfill our important mission,” said Becky Brooks, AWM president. “We strongly encourage up and coming women in radio, television and digital medias to apply for an opportunity to experience this unique mentoring program and stay engaged with AWM as we move into the next 70 years.”

The event will be held on Dec. 15 from noon to 1 p.m. ET and will include an opportunity for mentees and mentors to interact. Mentees will also be connected with mentors for a one-on-one conversation following the conclusion of the event.

Mentors will be members of the AWM and AWM Foundation board of directors as well as high-level executives specifically selected to match up with the mentees that apply for the program.

Mentees interested in participating in this inaugural program should apply by Dec. 1.

Because of the support of presenting sponsors Ford Motor Co. and Ziploc Accessory Bags, AWM is hosting this event at no cost for all selected applicants.


AWM is continuing its 70th anniversary celebrations and invites individuals to share a story of who inspires them on the digital tapestry and donating to the AWM Foundation on Giving Tuesday to continue adding more programming and scholarships.
