Why Be A Champion?

A Champion of The Future Women of TV understands that having experienced women available to hire is an asset. A Champion believes that gender parity starts with those who are hiring. And most importantly, a Champion prioritizes not only getting women working, but seeing them succeed in Hollywood.

There are many great diversity and inclusion programs, but they are almost exclusively tied to a specific studio and are more often than not focused on education. Women who are already trained, working professionals do not need another opportunity to learn — they need an opportunity to put their skills into action at the network level.

Becoming a Champion is easy — we only need one hour of your time to meet with the group to discuss specific strategies you’ve employed to get work in your career and help guide them to next steps for their careers. Our hope is that by connecting with these women, you can be a Champion towards enabling their first episode of television and / or referring them to someone who is in a hiring position.

If you would like to become a Champion or want to learn more about being a Champion please email us at fwtv@blackmagiccollective.com or call 818-934-1822.
