Women’s Media Center Announces Progressive Women’s Voices Class of 2015!
For Immediate Release
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Women's Media Center today congratulates the 20 women accepted into its WMC Progressive Women's Voices class of 2015.
WMC Progressive Women’s Voices is the premier media and leadership training program serving women in our country. The 20 women will be training in Washington, DC in July. They will join the nearly 200 women who have been a part of WMC Progressive Women’s Voices media training.
"The Women’s Media Center works to make women visible and powerful in media,“ said Julie Burton, President of the Women’s Media Center. Last month the Women’s Media Center released its study ‘WMC’s Divided 2015: The Media Gender Gap’ which showed that men wrote 62 percent of all stories across print, broadcast, and Internet stories. “Our media should reflect our country’s diverse voices and experiences – which our trainees represent,” Burton said. “They are important leaders with the expert knowledge in many issues that fill the headlines every day.”
WMC Progressive Women’s Voices trainees receive advanced, comprehensive training and tools to position themselves as media spokespersons in their fields. After their training they will be promoted through WMC SheSource -- a brain trust of top women experts used by media outlets worldwide.
Graduates from WMC Progressive Women’s Voices training programs have appeared in a multitude of diverse outlets including CNN, MSNBC, CSPAN, Al-Jazeera, Boston Globe, El Mundo, Forbes, Glamour, “Good Morning America,” Reuters, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, The New York Times, BBC, USA Today and more.
