Mizzou Women in Media is a student organization at the University of Missouri, School of Journalism that strives to bring together students and professionals working in media and create a better understanding of the issues that impact women in the professional field.

Women in media-related jobs face unique challenges and obstacles. Women make up roughly one-third of the journalism workforce, despite being half of the population. We want to provide a network to help empower women who want to enter the industry.

We are open to all undergraduate and graduate students in any school or department who want to pursue a career in journalism, advertising, marketing or communications. Interested in joining? Sign up for updates here.

As part of the My Voice campaign, we asked Mizzou women to tell us why their voices matter in media.
