Becky BrooksPresident, Alliance for Women in Media
When I was growing up I wanted to be a high school teacher just like my mom. I loved the idea of working with students at an age where they were impressionable and could connect with them as they considered their future.
A Little Bit About Me
As my career grew, I maintained my desire to impact and inspire people at every stop of their professional growth, from students and interns to media industry titans.
A Voice of Inspiration
Sue Chaffin, My Mother
My mom inspired me personally AND professionally. She had such a presence and grace about her and positive influence on her students. She connected with people in a way that made everyone feel important. Her impact on me was understanding how to connect with various types of people in different settings but always being comfortable in my own skin - with humility and confidence.
AWM is an inspiring organization thinking of a group of women signing us into existence 70 years ago. Their courage is what keeps us working hard so another group of women 70 years from now look back and are still inspired by what is happening today.
