Women hold only 23% of leadership positions in media organizations*.

There are many discussions around the reason for this gap. While others debate, we invite you to join the Alliance for Women in Media to hear from some of these women leaders.

Identify the unique skills that can help you truly excel in your career and be personally fulfilled.
