Progressive Women’s Voices (PWV) is the premier media and leadership training program for women in the country. Representing a range of expertise and diversity across race, class, geography, and generation, participants receive advanced, comprehensive training and tools to position themselves as media spokespeople in their fields, thereby changing the conversation on issues that fill the headlines. Participating in PWV will enable you to master effective interview presentation techniques and improve your skills to serve as thought leaders in the media. By joining Progressive Women’s Voices, you will become a part of a powerful network of women leaders who are changing the conversation on the important issues of the day. Progressive Women’s Voices starts with a competitive application process, with final candidates chosen by a committee that includes WMC Co-Founders Jane Fonda, Gloria Steinem, Robin Morgan, and our Board of Directors.
This year, WMC will train 20 women from across the country. Our Washington, DC training will be held from August 24-26th and our New York City training will be held from September 14-16th. We are currently accepting applications for both trainings and will close the application process at 11:59PM on June 4, 2012.
As a small non-profit, we require that accepted participants contribute a sliding-scale investment to help cover their training costs to keep the program sustainable. Fees are as follows (through a self-selected honor system):
$100: Individual or small-non profit rate
$500: Corporate rate
Selected participants are responsible for their own travel and lodging. Be assured that ability to pay is not a consideration in the review process. We will be providing a limited number of scholarships so that the program is accessible to women who need financial support. Women representing diverse backgrounds, areas of expertise, professions, ethnicities, abilities, ages, geographical regions and levels of experience are encouraged to apply (including those who have previously applied).
