Women in Media (WiM) is a networking initiative for women in the media industry, created out of a belief that solidarity in journalism is vital in ensuring good working conditions, more opportunities for women and credible journalism.
The network started in Western Australia in 2005 and has now grown to include groups in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, and Canberra.
Some of Australia’s most prominent women journalists have thrown their support behind WiM – including patron Caroline Jones and Tracey Spicer – to offer younger women in the industry support, advice and mentoring.
WiM hold regular professional development and networking events, as well giving members the opportunity to be inspired by a variety of accomplished guest speakers.
In addition, Women in Media has launched a mentoring program aimed at increasing opportunities and outcomes for women working in media. They also seek to foster resilience, and to transfer knowledge and accelerate learnings in the multi-skilled working environment that media is today.
Along with MEAA and The Walkley Foundation, Media Super is proud to be a partner of the Women in Media network.
