The AWSM chapter at UGA is seeking funds to help send chapter member to its national conference in June
Association for Women in Sports Media seek funds to attend conference
The Association for Women in Sports Media chapter at UGA has established a Georgia Funder account to raise money so their members can attend the national conference.
AWSM advocates for the professional advancement of women in sports media. As a student chapter, AWSM at UGA hosts guest speakers, networking and social events, and professional development workshops, and is closely aligned with the Grady Sports Media certificate at Grady College.
The chapter is seeking the opportunity to represent UGA and Grady College at the 2018 AWSM conference in Scottsdale, Arizona. Through this conference, chapter members will have the opportunity to learn from and network with professionals across the different fields of the sports media industry. The benefits of this event would resonate back on campus and catalyze a lasting movement toward camaraderie and mutual interest in development between students aspiring to careers in sports media.
Support of the fund will go toward the registration and travel expenses for a diverse group of driven women from the chapter.
