Mission Statement:

The Alliance for Women in Media leverages the promise, passion, and power of women in all forms of media. Formerly known as American Women in Radio and Television, AWM is the longest-established professional association dedicated to advancing women in media and entertainment, and will celebrate its 60th anniversary in 2011. The Alliance for Women in Media carries forth its mission by education, avocation, and acting as a resource to its members and the industry at large via inspired thought leadership that illuminates areas of societal need.

The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation supports and promotes educational programs, charitable activities, public service campaigns, and scholarships to benefit the public and the electronic media and allied fields. The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation has created partnerships and joint-initiatives with the National Middle School Association, the Emma Bowen Foundation, the American Red Cross, and other organizations that are philosophically aligned with the mission of the Foundation. The Foundation also produces nationally acclaimed recognition programs, including the Gracie Awards, a live gala that honors exemplary programming created for, by, and about women.
