Last year our WAM!NYC Gender Justice in the Media conference was headlined by the amazing co-founder of #BlackLivesMatter, Alicia Garza.
We had an engaging day of panels on gender and racial justice in the media. Who do you want to see at this year’s conference on June 25? Tell us!

Join us for WAMentoring, an informal conversation series with some of the most accomplished members of the NYC chapter of Women, Action & the Media (WAM!NYC).
This month’s mentor, Jamilah Lemieux is an award-winning, editor, writer, and speaker. She’s a leading millennial voice around issues of race, gender and sexuality. One of those pesky Black feminists who challenges the status quo, while remaining fresh and fab at all times.
Jamilah Lemieux’s work has appeared in Essence, Clutch, The Nation, the Washington Post, Gawker, and her award-winning blog, The Beautiful Struggler. In 2014, she was named to The Root 100 list of the nation’s most influential African Americans, as well as Fortune’s list of the most influential women on Twitter.
Light snacks and wine will be on deck as we delve into your deepest career-driven questions.

I spoke to a group of filmmakers about the importance of social media and digital communications!
I had a blast watching people’s eyes light up when I answered questions about how customized communications strategies can help them. I felt honored to be invited to speak.

As a team and band of brothers we are pretty diversified in skill sets and experience but [mentoring youth apprentices] is the most important thing we are doing right now…” – Kenneth J Montgomery
