PURPOSE

CMAA is committed to providing a conduit for women in the industry to make connections. We see a world where Christian women in the media have equal voice; where their God given creativity is nurtured and encouraged; where the sector is committed to gender diversity across all areas.

It is hoped that as Connect Women gains momentum, women in the sector will proactively seek each other out, share wisdom, and provide mentoring and leadership. The ultimate purpose is to see more women in management, leadership and presenting roles across the entire sector.

OBJECTIVES

• To hold an annual event at each CMAA Connect conference for women.

• To ensure more women are represented on the speaking platform at CMAA Connect conferences.

• To hold bi-annual events in the eastern capital cities and other large regional locations for women in Christian media. These events will be both for networking and training.

• To develop an Australian directory of women, capable of speaking at mainstream events on topics relevant to the sector.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_separator el_width=”50″ css=”.vc_custom_1552255651957{padding-top: 30px !important;padding-bottom: 40px !important;}”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

AT CMAA…

We believe that media and the arts have significant power to champion the virtues of Christ, speak truth, shape culture, and influence society.

We long for a culture where Australian lives and society are redeemed and transformed through knowing Jesus Christ.

Our vision is to see the hope of Jesus communicated across Australia in media and the arts by empowering creativity, advocating for change, and fostering unity and excellence.
