Our Mission

The mission of the Alliance for Women in Media is to advance the impact of women in the media and allied fields by educating, advocating and acting as a resource to our members, the industry, and the public.

Alliance for Women in Media History

The Alliance for Women in Media was formed in 1951 as successor to  the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) women’s division. NAB  voted approval of the new organization, offering complete cooperation  and assistance. The following year, more than 280 women gathered to  celebrate and approve the structure of American Women in Radio in  Television (AWRT). In 2010, the organization changed its name to the  Alliance for Women in Media, in order to better represent our commitment  to women in all forms of electronic media.
