Crowdfunding: to support women

Women in Media National Conference

Women in Media is currently on a crowdfunding journey, aiming to bring more women to the conference this year through our Pay-it-Forward initiative. We will host the largest gathering of female media professionals at our National Conference (8-9 September 2023) in Sydney. But we know that some exceptional women face a barrier to attending due to ticket costs and travel expenses.

Please help us reach our target to fund SEVEN women (one from each state) to attend (including conference tickets, airfare, accommodation, and a small stipend to make their journey to Sydney possible).

This is where you come in. We're calling on our wonderful community to join forces and contribute to this incredible crowdfunding campaign. Our goal is to raise $25,000, which will send not one, but SEVEN deserving delegates to our National Conference.

Prior attendees say:

"The mix of personal and professional development, and great networking is unique. It felt like a really safe space."

"Truly, such an inspirational couple of days!!!!"

"Being able to connect with women who have similar experiences; learning from people who are more advanced in their career and gaining an understanding of my potential, was empowering."

Women in Media strives to tackle the challenges women face in the media sector head-on by publishing research that sheds light on the persistent barriers that women encounter, such as gender inequality, limited career opportunities, and a lack of industry support. We empower women through our programs and advance positive change and gender equality with stakeholders and decision-makers.

In fact, our Women in Media Industry Insight Report 2023 has only strengthened our resolve to address the persistent barriers facing women in the media industry. We're not just building networks; we're creating a vibrant community of empowered and motivated women!

And with your generous support, we're working towards a future where every woman can unleash her full potential, thrive and progress in her career.

Our National Conference is a catalyst for change, providing women the opportunity to build networks and share knowledge. They also walk away empowered, motivated and engaged in the media industry.

So, with your help, we can all be champions for change. Your contribution, no matter the size, can have a massive impact on these talented women that would otherwise not be able to attend, learn and grow from the National Conference.

Join us on this extraordinary journey of empowerment. Your support will not only help these women attend the conference of a lifetime, but it will also shape the future of the media industry itself.
