OUR MISSION

GreenLight Women is an alliance of accomplished creative and business professionals 40 and over whose mission is to champion women and promote diverse perspectives in media.

GreenLight Women is the first and only non-profit organization in the entertainment industry to focus on the needs and challenges of women of this age.  Our purpose is to fight ageism and provide a community of support and encouragement for the thousands of women who are navigating getting older in our youth-oriented business; to help each other achieve our individual goals, to promote diversity, to share our knowledge and experience with the next generation and to change attitudes about aging in our industry.

The world has preconceived ideas about aging – antiquated stereotypes that are no longer valid.   It is up to us to challenge those ideas and prove them wrong.  This is what GreenLight Women is about.  It’s a forum for advocacy, change and self-discovery and defining our future on our terms.
