My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Women in Film & Video Inc, Washington, DC, USA
I joined the board because it was time to give back - this is the premier professional development organization in DC for film and video. It is also a community. It is also a deep network, for everything from technical issues on a particular software to international strategic considerations. It runs programming from monthly round tables by professional interests to intensive weekend workshops, from resume review to job fairs, from seminars to screenings to happy hours to a fiscal sponsorship program and issue advocacy efforts. It is so good at connecting people with the resources they need to work and thrive as professionals that people continue their membership even when they leave DC.
