Speed Mentoring-Film/TV Produced By Alliance for women in media

Empower women in Film & TV. Pay it forward.

Join AWM SoCal for our most popular networking event - Speed Mentoring - on Saturday, June 16th at CBS Radford Studio Lot!

"Our Spring Speed Mentoring event will focus on all aspects of Film and Television"

Speed Mentoring is modeled after the speed-dating concept where industry professionals in filmmaking, film production, marketing and TV serve as mentors to give valuable career advice to mentees through five minute one-on-one conversations.

This setting is ideal for both students and/or professionals who may be established or exploring a career change. It’s all about meeting people, making connections and helping each other.

All ages and career levels are welcome.
