• Demonstrated media savvy, political knowledge, ability to converse on multiple issues

WMC Progressive Women’s Voices starts with a highly competitive application process. Women who graduate from the program leave with a sophisticated understanding of the current media climate, what messages work best for different audiences, and the most effective interview presentation and techniques.
Women representing diverse backgrounds, areas of expertise, professions, ethnicities, ages, geographical regions, and levels of experience are encouraged to apply (including those who have previously applied).
WMC’s PWV program is extremely competitive. Because of the high volume of quality applications, the Women’s Media Center cannot accept as many deserving women as we would like. Candidates who have previously applied will be rigorously and impartially considered.
The training is supported by the Women’s Media Center and is provided at no cost to those who are accepted. Selected participants are responsible for their own travel and lodging, although there will be a small number of travel stipends available to successful candidates who would otherwise not be able to attend the training.
To Apply: Complete this application form before our April 5 deadline.
