WMC Progressive Women’s Voices is the premier media and message training program for women in the country.  There are not enough progressive women’s voices in mainstream media and this program aims to change that.  We are looking for women with diverse expertise (economic justice, health care policy, LGBTQ rights, etc.) who have the ability to make their voices heard in the media.  We seek thought leaders, issue experts, and advocates for change who want to gain knowledge and skills to leverage their messages both locally and nationally.  Participants represent a range of expertise and diversity across race, class, geography, sexual preference, ability, and generation. They receive advanced, comprehensive training and tools to position themselves as media spokespeople in their fields, thereby changing the conversation on issues that fill headlines. Graduates join a supportive network of alumnae who support each other in their media goals.
