I first heard about All Women in Media Boston last December and decided to go to an event they were hosting in the North End. I was extremely impressed not only with the mission and goals of AWM Boston, but the dynamic and fun-loving group of talented women I met at this event. I'm not an active member and would recommend this non-profit to everyone! This org has something for everyone, from info on government policies that impact women's equality in the workplace, upcoming events/fundraisers and ways to connect with female media professionals in New England.
