AWM is the aggregation of all women’s voices in media, and the leaders of the organization know that every voice is not only different, but rich in its individual context. In order to share these narratives in an even more personal and meaningful way, AWM has developed a new website, which has been titled, “Voices.” AWM’s leadership encourages media professionals to join the celebration by contributing to the tapestry.

“The Alliance for Women in Media was founded by courageous women 70 years ago and has been led by courageous women (and men) ever since. It is fitting that we are celebrating 70 years of courage in tandem with recognizing the unparalleled determination and bravery shown by frontline journalists over the last year through the 46th Annual Gracie Awards,” said Becky Brooks, President, AWM/F. “This marks an important year in our organization’s history, and we are committed to supporting and advancing women in media for another 70 years.”

In 1960, the Alliance for Women in Media formed an educational foundation – the first of its kind established by any professional broadcasting organization, and in 1975, the Foundation began an annual awards program, recognizing outstanding content created by, for and about women. In 1997 those awards became The Gracies, named after Gracie Allen, a media pioneer who embodied the character of the awards.
