In celebration of the organization’s 60th anniversary, the ALLIANCE FOR WOMEN IN MEDIA (AWM) announces its list of the 60 most inspiring women in media. Selected from nominations submitted by a national poll of AWM community members, the SIXTY@60 women were chosen based on their achievements, dedication, authenticity and commitment to advancing their professions. AWM will celebrate its lasting legacy and honor the SIXTY@60 at AWM's 60th Anniversary Luncheon on NOVEMBER 3rd in NEW YORK CITY.
"THE ALLIANCE FOR WOMEN IN MEDIA's 60th Anniversary is an exciting milestone, and honoring the women who inspire us is a fitting way to celebrate," commented AWM Chair VALERIE K. BLACKBURN. "AWM owes its success and longevity to the innovative and creative media professionals who have promoted media for, by and about women for 60 years."
