Glass Elevator is a networking and skill sharing tool for professional women in the industry. It is the free, membership-based international community of over 4,000 vetted women designed to increase the skills and strengthen the contacts of and relationships between our members in an effort to reach gender parity in our business.
Membership grants you access to peer to peer career advancement classes, social events, a searchable database of our Member Directory and an internal Avail Check system.
Glass Elevator members are Executives, Talent, Above the Line, Heads of Departments and Crew from script through criticism. Members hail from every union and guild. Some are Emmy and Academy Award winners.
Who you know and what you know is currency in this town. Let's increase and share the wealth. Glass Elevator is here to get women working.
All members begin with two points and those can be spent on attending classes. Additional points are gained by offering something back to the community - teaching a class, hosting a social event, referring a new member or posting a job.
If you would like to offer a class you must supply the venue. Please be creative. This could be your home, your office, a coffee shop, a picnic table at a park, etc. Whatever is most conducive to learning the task at hand and whatever you are most comfortable with.
Attending a class “costs” one point. Attending a social event costs nothing.
If you attend a class or event please bring whatever the host requests. This could be snacks, beverages or any basic tools you may need to participate. Please do not bail, do arrive on time and know that this site is used exclusively by industry professionals; conduct yourselves accordingly.
“Knowing is half the battle”. Let’s go kick some doors in!
