Women In Jazz Media

Women in Jazz Media is a new organisation, started towards the end of 2020 by vocalist, composer and journalist Fiona Ross, WIJM started out as a community to support women working in jazz media as journalists, photographers, promoters, etc. Over the past few months, it has grown substantially and expanding its remit to support and champion all women within the jazz industry, working towards a safe, healthy and equal environment for all. Its mission statement is to “promote and celebrate women who work in jazz media; encourage and support a more diverse jazz community; create a healthy and supportive environment for women who work in jazz media; and encourage collaborative thinking and mutual support within the jazz community.”
