Over the past 40 years, the Alliance for Women In Media Foundation (AWMF) has annually honored exemplary women and men in the media and entertainment industry – individuals who are pioneers in their respective fields and lead by example. This year’s 40th Anniversary Gracies Awards, in support of the AWMF’s many educational programs, charitable activities, public service and scholarship campaigns that benefit women in media, is being held on Tuesday, May 19 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The evening will honor such luminaries as Julia Roberts, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Olivia Munn, and Mae Whitman, among many others. Additionally, AWMF will bestow Cicely Tyson with the Lifetime Achievement Award for her groundbreaking work, giving a voice to women in film and television for more than 60 years.

Local market, public, digital and student award winners will be recognized at the Gracies Awards Luncheon on June 22 in New York.

Kristen Welch, Alliance for Women in Media Foundation Chair, said: “Though we receive hundreds of submissions from all over the country every year, it never ceases to amaze us of all the great work that has been done to further highlight women in media. We are thrilled to honor such smart, thoughtful and inspirational individuals, organizations and programming this year.”

The evening will showcase the strides women have made in media throughout the past 40 years and celebrate the bold new trails women are blazing for tomorrow.
