This summer, I was elected to the Board of Directors of the New York Women in Film and Television organization (NYWIFT). I am proud to serve the organization, which supports the careers of women in the Entertainment Industry.
I am honored that this week NYWIFT is running a profile on me, as part of their “Meet the New Board Members” series. You can see it here.
A long time ago, I learned that nobody hands you anything in this business. You have to make your own opportunities and run with them. At the same time, filmmaking and television producing are collaborative industries, and I believe that to get the best work out of people, your crew must feel invested and appreciated.
I love NYWIFT because the inclusive nature of the organization is an extension of that philosophy. Our membership is made up of some of the most talented and generous people I’ve ever met. There are many ways to make an impact in the organization. NYWIFT connects talented women so that no challenge feels too great, and it trains members from within to give them a competitive edge.
If you’re someone in the New York area with at least four years’ professional experience in film, TV or digital media and interested in joining, you can find more information here. We’d love to have you.
