Women in Media (WIM)
“Women in Media (WIM) is an inclusive campus organization focused on empowering and educating students interested in media and entertainment. Our goal is explore women’s roles and issues within this industry while preparing the next generation of women media-makers to enter into the professional world. Through year-round workshops, discussions with guest speakers, and more, WIM hosts exclusive professional development opportunities to help students jump-start their future careers.
Each spring, WIM organizes the annual UCSB Women in Media Conference featuring distinguished women in roles from across the entertainment industry. At this weekend-long event, students have the chance to hear insight directly from our speakers and build a lasting network of professionals and peers. Previous guests include Sahar Vahedi (Director of Development & Programming at Blumhouse Television), Lindsay Liles (producer on ABC’s The Bachelor), Kit Steinkellner (writer on Facebook’s Sorry For Your Loss), Dilcia Barrera (feature programmer at Sundance Film Festival), and more.”
