For International Women’s Day (IWD) 2021, FIPP and Media x Women invite you to join in to amplify the achievements of female talent in media and highlight the positive impact your organisation has on achieving equality and inclusivity.
The campaign kicks off today and will continue throughout the year. Around the globe organisations such as UN Women and IWD are focused on the goal of gender parity for all. FIPP members are in a unique position to use the power of our collective voices to promote the importance of diversity, inclusion, and equity in the media industry. We invite you to identify women in our industry to highlight on the How She Made It podcast and share your company success stories on equity and inclusion. You can send your proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Taking this step to raise up women’s voices and celebrate strides our members are making towards true equity is very much in line with FIPP’s core values, especially as we continue through this uncharted pandemic landscape—and work to envision and become who we want to be on the other side.
Linda Saint Marc, Founder of Media x Women, says: “The next generation of talent expects organisations to commit to a culture of acceptance, fairness, and respecting each human’s value. Promoting success stories of how FIPP members are advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion within their organisations is vital for the industry’s evolution.”
Sylkia J. Cartagena, editor of FIPP, said: “FIPP is delighted to be partnering with Media x Women to help make visible the female talent across the industry. Questions of people, diversity, and inclusion have never been more central in the industry, and they feel more urgent than ever.”
