Letter from the President

Jennifer Burk headshotAt this time of year, we want to thank all of our sponsors, members and friends who help AWM deliver on our mission of advancing the impact of women, young professionals and students in the media and allied fields.

November was a busy month with our “Movember” Happy Hour and Chili Cook-off benefitting DREAM Fund.  We’re proud of AWM members, Lauren Albin and Lindsey Dobbs, who were co-chairs of the Chili Cook-off and did an awesome job.  The chilly weather made the chili taste even better!
