Our New Name

That's right! Our name is now:
Women in the Arts & Media Coalition, Inc.

We changed it to better suit our growing national impact as well as ease of use. WAMCo is still deeply grounded in our root mission:being the link between our member organizations as we collaborate to impact the various topics that affect women in our industry through advocacy, networking, and events.

New Name - Same Great Mission

We look forward to continuing to grow with our membership, our industries and our world.

On March 23rd, we presented our Collaboration Award to playwright Stefanie Zadravec, DG(left) & director Daniella Topol,  SDC (right) for their collaboration on The Electric Baby.

The event was magnificent, and the crowd was large and enthusiastic. The raffle prizes were a big hit and the networking was legendary. We have heard back from so many people about how inspiring the night was, and how they've already made plans for the next one!

Cross-Org Meet & Greets
This new event series is an opportunity for two of our member organizations to get to know each other better  - as a whole and one-on-one - through a social networking evening.

Our first Meet & Greet introduced members of the League of Professional Theatre Women (LPTW), and New York Women in Film & Television (NYWIFT). After some terrific networking warm-ups, people ate, drank, and talked well past the official ending time.  We are excited to continue this series every few months.

We'd love to hear from your organization about what other organization you'd like to connect with - give us a shout-out atwamcoalition@gmail.com!
