Take the Women in Media survey before it closes on Good Friday

Women are being reminded today their voice and views matter and Women in Media wants to hear them. The new survey lets people confidentially share feedback about gender equality, career progression, access to support and resources, diversity, and/or senior roles for women.

Television producer and media executive Anita Jacoby is right behind the important initiative. As a board director of the organisation, Jacoby said the survey will provide important feedback. “The data will provide valuable insights into the issues and opinions of women working in the media,” she said.

“We want your views on industry commitment to gender equality, employer focus, your career, learning initiatives and future skills,” she said. “Your responses will help Women in Media focus its efforts and serve as building blocks for our future direction.”

The organisation exists to support women by creating connections, accelerating career development and maximising potential.

Providing opportunities for upskilling and access to resources through mentoring, industry programs and events, the industry body encourages women to give back and create supportive environments to achieve professional success, with the greater visibility of women in media creating a virtuous circle of participation.

While individual responses will remain strictly confidential, published findings will be released to participants, the media, government, and industry.

The survey closes Friday 15 April 2022. Take the survey here.
