About Alliance for Women in Media

Our Mission

The mission of Dallas Area Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWM DFW) is to advance the impact of women, young professionals and students that endeavor to work in the electronic media and allied fields by educating and acting as a resource to our members and the industry.

Our Local History

AWM DFW was formed over three decades ago to offer educational, support and growth opportunities for professionals and students in an ever-changing industry.  Our programs and signature events are designed to support our initiatives.  The dedication of the board of directors and our members make it possible to fulfill our mission to educate and be a resource to professionals and students in our industry.

Our National History

AWM was formed in 1951 when the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) discontinued its women’s division, the Association of Women Directors (AWD). The NAB Board voted approval of a new organization, offering complete cooperation and assistance until the new organization could work out the details of separate operation. The following year, over 280 women gathered to approve the structure of the new organization.

Our Initiatives

Education, professional development, networking, student support, job information.
