About Alliance for Women in Media
The mission of Dallas Area Alliance for Women in Media Foundation or AWM-DFW is to advance the impact of women, young professionals and students that endeavor to work in the electronic media and allied fields by educating and acting as a resource to our members and the industry.
Our Local History
AWM-DFW was formed over three decades ago to offer support, education and growth opportunities for women and professionals in an ever-changing industry. Our monthly programs and signature events are designed to support our initiatives. The dedication of the board of directors and our members make it possible to fulfill our mission to educate and be a resource to students, women and members of our industry.
Our National History
AWM was formed in 1951 when the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) discontinued its women’s division, the Association of Women Directors (AWD). The NAB Board voted approval of a new organization, offering complete cooperation and assistance until the new organization could work out the details of separate operation. The following year, over 280 women gathered to approve the structure of the new organization.
Job information service, professional development programs, educational networking opportunities, and student scholarships.
