My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Women in Film & Video Inc, Washington, DC, USA
I joined WIFV in 1999 hoping it would help me transition into a film/video career. It did that and so much more! It provided me a slew of job opportunities, and a platform to fully explore and utilize my event production and leadership skills. I was able to gain valuable experience from a generous and supportive community, and have fully transitioned into a full-blown media and entertainment expert. I thank this community!!
The organization also allows its members to serve and contribute to WIFV's growth, which brings an indescribable satisfaction of giving back--or paying forward--and self growth. I was encouraged in 2009 to bring the Conscious Media roundtable under the auspices of WIFV so that others could discover this burgeoning genre. I was also encouraged by my peers to serve on the Board, and eventually as President, where others saw something in me that I did not see in myself. This is an amazing community of generous creatives and givers.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Like to see it's profile raised. DC is the 3rd largest production community in the US, yet we are still lagging in respect behind LA and NYC.
