Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 22, 2012
This month, judges for the 2013 Gracie Awards were contacted to begin another year celebrating the outstanding achievements of women is media. Shellie Hunt, CEO and founder of the Women of Global Change accepted her invitation to judge the awards for a fourth consecutive year. Hunt’s dedication to women’s empowerment and positive progress is shadowed only by her philanthropic endeavors throughout the world with the Women of Global Change.
The Gracie Awards have honored women including Katie Couric, Barbara Walters, Robin Meade, Oprah Winfrey, Suze Orman and Chelsea Handler to name only a few.
“The roll of women in business and especially in media is important to a population becoming ever more exposed to mass communications,” explained Hunt. “I am honored to support these outstanding women who support others on their quests to create change in the world we live in.”
Modernity and human perception is undeniably shaped by the global village, connected and separated by technologies that facilitate varied mass communication. The Women’s Media Center (WMC) released a study this year, reporting that “…women have consistently been underrepresented in news and entertainment media, with little change in proportions over time.” For over 35 years, the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation’s Gracie Awards has honored industry professionals for supporting outstanding programming for women, about women and by women.
Along with the Gracie Awards, Hunt was recently a keynote speaker at The California Women’s Conference, a nationally recognized event formerly produced by Maria Shriver. Hunt’s presentation echoed her mission with the Women of Global Change, to inspire personal potential though philanthropic work and education. Hunt’s dedication to women’s empowerment is at the forefront of all her business endeavors proving her credibility at next year’s Gracie awards. Hunt has also recently signed a deal with Rob Weller in regards to her own talk show.
"I started the Women of Global Change under many of the same principles the Gracie's stand for. I believe it's time for women's leadership in our communities, in the workforce and around the world," said Hunt. The WGC’s International Adventure Summit was created to bring individuals together for personal growth through community outreach in both national and international locations. The 2013 Summit begins February in the adverse countryside of Costa Rica, where participants will explore beautiful rain forest and work on humanitarian projects benefiting those most in need, while also learning how to take their businesses, products and services global.
