McLean, VA (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
The Alliance for Women in Media (AWM) is pleased to announce the "Women Who Represent" honorees. An elite group of women who govern, influence and inform will be honored at the 2013 "Women Who Represent" Breakfast on November 14, 2013, in Washington, D.C. During this exclusive event, AWM will celebrate the accomplishments and impact of dedicated women who help shape the political and media landscape nationally and globally.
“AWM is proud to recognize women who make a difference through advocacy, policy and industry outreach,” said Kay Olin, AWM Chair. “We are excited to host this event in our nation’s capital to honor the accomplishments of our 'Women Who Represent' honorees and inspire tomorrow’s political, media, and thought leaders.”
As women take their seat – and increasingly, seats – at the political table, women are also increasingly covering our political news. Today's omnipresent media and never-ending news stream allows for a wide spectrum in terms of both information and views, and women journalists are front and center. At the same time, women have increased their influence and clout in Washington D.C. and beyond.

- Meredith A. Baker, Senior Vice President, NBCUniversal Government Relations

Fuller, AWM President. “As an organization founded and still based on a strong advocacy and a commitment to increasing women’s political influence, these awards are especially exciting and rewarding to celebrate.”
