With the #VoteForWomen campaign, WIF has been amplifying the women whose work behind the camera is deserving of consideration for our industry's major awards. In the weeks leading up to the Primetime Emmy nominations, join us for conversations with some of the creative forces behind television content spanning all genres and formats. WIF will be holding our first-ever #VoteForWomen TV Summit, with virtual panels joining women creatives from different series sharing and comparing their experiences with each other. More programming to be announced.


WIF's #VoteForWomen campaign amplifying the women whose work behind the camera is deserving of our industry's top awards... is coming to the "small" screen! Join us on Wednesday, June 23 for a full day of curated programming to learn about the women who are changing the television landscape.

These events are free and will be available on our YouTube channel—if you're a Television Academy member, you'll want to make sure to see these conversations before Emmy® nominations-round voting closes at 10 p.m. on Monday, June 28!
