They resolved to take positive action and follow in the footsteps of organisations in LA and New York, which had been established in the 70s, to support women working in the film and TV industries. They did this by creating a network of members and organising workshops, events, mentoring and awards to help them progress in their careers.
In 1990 the first Women in Film and Television Awards ceremony was held to recognise the achievements of some of the most successful women the industry could boast. 24 years on, the Awards is the largest annual celebration of women working in film, TV and digital media in the UK and has become a 'must attend' event.
The organisation has grown from being run by volunteers to having, 4 full-time members of staff, a busy programme of events and a well-respected Mentoring Scheme.
