The Association for Women in Sports Media has the following objectives: to serve as a positive advocate for women in sports media, through support services, networking and national visibility; to mentor and assist young women entering into sports media, through scholarships, internships and contact with experienced members; to serve as a watchdog, promoting fair portrayal of female professionals in sports media, encouraging diversity, positive workplace environments and equal access to opportunities.
AWSM is a volunteer-managed, 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 1987 as a support network and advocacy group for women who work in sports writing, editing, broadcast and production, and public and media relations. Our membership of more than 400 men and women includes professionals in the industry and students aspiring to sports media careers. AWSM works to promote and increase diversity in sports media through our internship/scholarship program, which has placed more than 90 female college students in paid internships since 1990, as well as through mentoring links and career-enhancement initiatives. We annually pay tribute to individuals who have paved the way for women in sports media with the Mary Garber Pioneer Award and we help those who encounter roadblocks on the trails yet to be blazed.
