“The Status of Women in the U.S. Media 2019” from Women's Media Center shows that despite some gains, men still dominate in every part of news, entertainment and digital media.
Here are some facts you may not know:
JAWS tackles these issues head-on with a combination of training, mentoring, and networking. Each year we support a group of emerging women journalists to attend our annual Conference and Mentoring Program (CAMP) with fellowships and match them with mentors who give guidance on career planning, self-advocacy and leadership. We have brought top-notch speakers such as Gloria Steinem, Jill Abramson, Nikole Hannah-Jones and Dorothy Butler Gilliam to inspire and challenge our members. We offer multimedia training to keep our members competitive in a challenging environment. We are proud of our success stories, but we need your help to continue and grow.
