NALIP’s Diverse Women in Media Initiative (DWIMI) seeks to empower, inspire and advance women of diverse backgrounds to influential positions in media to improve diverse representation on and behind the camera.


The Forum


The Diverse Women in Media Forum is an exclusive one day event that brings together diverse women to meet, inspire and empower each other.  The purpose of the Forum is to help women advance to positions of influence and power within media.  Attendees will learn from dynamic industry women leaders, hear thought-provoking sessions and workshops to come away with new tools, ideas and connections to influence the future of women in media. 

Stay tuned for announcement on our 2018 Forum program!

The Mentorship & Incubator


During other NALIP programs, such as the Media Summit, trainings are held specifically to support our diverse female constituency, such as executive leadership and writing workshops, panel events, and industry access meetings. Training sessions are held within NALIP programs such as the NALIP Media Summit.

    Sounds like this would have been a great forum. I hope they have another one soon.

    Diversity is an important step to ensuring an equal society for all. It is even more important with women as it helps to build camaraderie that is necessary to make sure equality and diversity is on the agenda at all times.

    Wish we could make the event on the 7th, we were wondering if it will be recorded? Looks to be a powerful one day event that is sure to inspire.
