September Hello

Introducing the AWM:NYC Newsletter


It has been a whirlwind 7 months to say the least. All of us at the Alliance for Women In Media: NYC Affiliate hope you are staying safe & healthy!

We mean it when we say that we want to be more of a resource for you, and to get to know you better. That is one of the reasons why we are rolling out a monthly newsletter. Depending on the month, we will be sharing professional reflections, trending articles, inspiring Ted Talks, recommended podcasts, member spotlights - basically things that are on our radar that we believe should be on yours, too.

We’d love for this to be a two-way street, and as such encourage you to continually submit any articles/videos/thoughts you have to [email protected] to share.

As we look to our 2020-2021 year, we plan to offer virtual networking opportunities, a workshop on managing distractions in a virtual world, a holiday social event, our annual trend event in January and moreThe challenges COVID presents professionally are outweighed by the opportunities, we just have to be intentional about it. If these ideas appeal to you, or you know someone who would be a great panel participant or discussion leader, let us know! 

For our next event, we will be hosting a panel this Tuesday, 9/15 called Advancing Your Career: Advice to Our Younger Selves. Jill Albert (CEO & Founder, Direct Results), Linda Ong (Chief Culture Officer, Civic Entertainment Group) and Risa Wexler (self-described "Chief Media Nerd", VP Marketing Lab, Pfizer) will be lending their insights and answering questions on career growth, risk taking, self-advocacy and more through a moderated discussion with Jan Weinstein (Executive Director, Publicis Health Media). Let’s all pretend for an hour that COVID does not exist, and focus on our professional goals.   

Until Then, Food for Thought:
