Career Advancement

Providing advocacy, education, and support to women directors is a cornerstone of Alliance of Women Directors. Our Career Advancement Program does all three through our Craft Enrichment Series, In-House Shadowing Program, and Industry Support Program.

The Craft Enrichment Series is open to all AWD members and consists of master classes, workshops, and panels geared toward preparing attendees for a successful career.
